Shenzhen, a Chinese city neighboring Hong Kong, tightened controls on entry and exit after a restaurant employee was infected with the delta coronavirus variant.

All visitors entering the city via airport terminals and their ground transportation centers must provide a negative nucleic-acid test administered in the prior 48 hours, according to a statement posted on Shenzhen Airport Group’s WeChat account. The measure, effective from earlier Saturday afternoon, comes on top of existing requirements such as temperature checks and scanning of QR codes that track a person’s health status, it added.

The city will also require negative nucleic acid tests taken within 48 hours before departure for people leaving the city by plane, train or bus, the city’s transportation administration said in a statement on its WeChat account. The tightening for outbound visitors is effective Sunday.
