However, some control and prevention measures will continue at the community. Residents will need to use passes to go in and out of the community and their health will be monitored for a week.

Beijing saw a resurgence of COVID-19 cases on July 28, after one confirmed locally transmitted case was reported.

The Beijing Education Commission announced earlier that schools will start the new semester in September as scheduled. All teachers and students at colleges should have negative nucleic acid test reports within 48 hours of returning to campus.

Zhang Boli, president of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, on Monday told Health Times, that it's possible the epidemic may be fully under control on the Chinese mainland before the end of this month.

"The Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holidays are coming soon and the public has expressed its desire to travel during the holidays," he said. "It will be possible to go out, as long as the prevention and control measures are strictly followed."

The mainland on Monday reported one new locally transmitted confirmed COVID-19 case in Henan province, the National Health Commission said in its daily report on Tuesday.
