Quarantine made just a little easier

Some residents in the Pudong New Area’s Lianyang community can now complete arrival information online before they return to Shanghai from another country.

This saves them about two hours between landing and arriving home, police said yesterday.

A digital form asks about the country of departure, transit country, flight number, desired method of quarantine and whether they are house owners or tenants.

After the form is filled in within three days before departure, the information is shared between community police officers and exit-entry police, so no further forms are needed on arrival.

Also, since the arrival is known in advance, community officials, doctors and police officers will be waiting for residents where they live, enabling them to start home quarantine as soon as possible.

So far, 227 residents in the community have used the service since March 18, while 626 people there have been subject to home quarantine.
