1. Duration of Lockdowns 

A 10-day lockdown is required for closed-off and controlled neighborhoods (villages). If the results of all the tests from environmental sources in a neighborhood (village) are negative, then the lockdown starts from the exact time of the infected people leaving the neighborhood (village). If any item from environment sources is tested positive, then the lockdown starts from the exact time of the completion of terminal disinfection. Once there is a new COVID-19 case or risk area (the newly-added risk area is not overlapped with the original ones and located outside the units of the original COVID cases), the time should be recalculated.

2. Nucleic Acid Tests during Lockdowns 

Nucleic acid tests will be administered on the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th days from the day of the lockdown, and antigen self-tests will be conducted on the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th days.

3. Lifting of Restrictions

If all the testing results are negative, and the last close contacts have been absent for four days or more with negative test results, then restrictions will be lifted after a 10-day lockdown and full assessment by authorities of pandemic prevention and control in the district.

4. Adhering to Safety Standards 

After the restrictions are lifted, those in closed-off neighborhoods (villages) should follow the requirements of controlled neighborhoods (villages) for four days, while those in controlled neighborhoods (villages) need four  days of health monitoring.
