Starting March 1, arrivals and close contacts of confirmed cases no longer receive free COVID-19 at-home rapid tests

On February 20, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that, effective March 1, at-home rapid test kits will no longer be provided free of charge to arriving travelers and close contacts of confirmed cases. Members of the public can purchase rapid tests through retail channels/pharmacies, convenience stores or other places selling rapid tests. In terms of this change, the effective date is based on the scheduled arrival time for arriving travelers and, for close contacts of confirmed cases, based on the date on which confirmed cases begin their isolation.
