According to a notification released Monday at a press conference, residential communities in Beijing are required to enhance management, with all personnel and vehicles coming in and out to be verified for registration.

Stricter requirements have been proposed concerning targeted groups, quarantine procedures and the management of public spaces and rental housing.
