Shanghai citizens are required to scan the “venue code” or get checks by the “digital sentry,” or a comprehensive code scanning and temperature check machine, to enter or leave public venues and communities.
Some public sites will also require a 48-hour negative PCR test report.
Foreign residents can apply for the Suishenma health code with their passport through the Suishenban app. It will take one workday for manual verification and approval. They can also bond their Chinese bank cards with Suishenban micro app on Alipay to get the code.
Almost all local public venues and communities will put up the venue codes, which can check the identity, health information and latest PCR test result as well as record the trace of the visitors for epidemiological investigation during the COVID-19 resurgence.
Those who cannot use mobile phone apps can use their ID card or paper-version health code for security staff to scan and verify.
Companies and communities without the venue code or digital sentry won’t be allowed to resume work or apply to become a “pandemic-free community”.
The personal information collected from the venue code and digital sentry will also be used for the epidemiological investigation for the COVID-19 prevention and control. No company or individual should use the data for other purposes.
