[Introduction]: according to the domestic epidemic prevention and control policy, in principle, low-risk areas do not need to be isolated across provinces. However, some cities require people from low-risk areas to return home, and they also need to be isolated at home for 14 or 7 days.

Do low-risk areas need to be isolated across provinces?

On January 20, the press conference of the joint defense and joint control mechanism of the State Council: Returning people need to hold the negative certificate of nucleic acid test within 7 days.

Even returning from low-risk areas requires nucleic acid testing and isolation. Previously, Puyang city, Hebei province and Zhumadian counties require people from low-risk areas to return home and need to be isolated at home for 14 or 7 days.

Who needs nucleic acid testing?

Three categories issued by the National Health and Health Commission: ① returning people across provinces; ② returning people from the cities where the high-risk areas in the province are located (the internal personnel in the high-risk areas are not mobile in principle); (3) key groups such as imported cold chain food practitioners in the province, direct contact with imported goods practitioners at ports, workers in isolated places, and employees of transportation tools.

8 Categories in Shanghai province: ① personnel in high and medium risk areas; ② personnel after the isolation of entry; ③ drivers of cross-border trucks in Guangdong and Hong Kong; ④ crew of small ships traveling to and from Hong Kong and Macao and floating fishermen in Hong Kong and Macao (including mainland fishermen);⑤ staff in isolated places; ⑥ staff in fever clinic; ⑦ staff in direct contact with imported cold chain food and imported goods; ⑧ crew of international flight.

The specific implementation plan should be combined with local policies.
