Guangdong to enforce quarantine to Macau, HK and Taiwan residents

Guangdong authorities announced today that starting from 6:00am of March 27 any residents from Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan entering through its border checkpoints will have to undergo 14-day quarantine at designated locations and at their own cost.

Exemptions will be granted for some people working in logistics of essentials goods between Mainland China to Macau and Hong Kong.

The announcement comes after both SARs this week announced several new stricter regulations, with local residents now effectively blocked from entering Guangdong and Hong Kong without having to be subject to quarantine.

The number of imported Covid-19 cases reported in Macau has increased in the last week, with 21 new cases confirmed, all imported, and bringing the total tally to 31.
