Shanghai residents will be allowed to bring their pets together with them for quarantine after new local COVID-19 cases were reported in the city, the Global Times reports.
The Zhaotong residential area, where the confirmed cases live, was designated medium risk on Thursday in Shanghai.
However, the neighborhood's outdated facilities and structures may cause problems in implementing closed-off management, prompting the municipal government to relocate those residents for central quarantine.
Residents are allowed to bring their pets to the centralized quarantine, a staff member from Shanghai district authorities, who preferred to remain unnamed, told the Global Times.
Reportedly, locals praised the initiative.
