 The city of Langfang in North China's Hebei Province, a city neighboring Beijing, has urged residents and vehicles to avoid going to the capital after Beijing's Daxing district reported new COVID-19 cases. 

Langfang completed its seven-day citywide home quarantine on Tuesday. Langfang neighbors Beijing's Daxing district, where three confirmed cases have been reported since Monday. 

The local government of Langfang announced on Tuesday that apart from Gu'an, a county administered by Langfang, other parts of the city will return to normal. Gu'an will continue to implement home quarantine until January 25

Langfang will continue to discourage local residents from entering Beijing. Vehicles and personnel entering the capital will go through checks and have their identities verified.  

Commuters who work in Beijing must hold a negative nucleic acid test report and travel pass provided by their employers when they enter the capital for work. 

Transportation vehicles from Langfang can pass into Beijing if their drivers have negative nucleic acid test certificates and a travel pass provided by the local government.
