(Bloomberg) — The Chinese megacity of Chengdu exited its lockdown on Monday, with 21 million people allowed to leave their homes and resume most aspects of normal life for the first time since Sept. 1, provided they’re tested regularly for Covid-19.

Residents will need to be tested at least once a week for the virus, with a negative result from within the previous 72 hours required to enter most venues and take public transportation, according to a statement from the local government.
