Leaving Tianjin for other places

At present, the whole area of Tianjin is a low-risk area. According to the policies of major cities in China, there is no need to quarantine, and in most cases, nucleic acid testing isn't needed. Health codes are mandatory.

However, some cities currently require "nucleic acid test reports from low-risk areas travelers." For example, Wuhan, Gansu Longxi, Anhui Huainan, Henan Jiaozuo, Hebei Qinhuangdao, and other places require a nucleic acid test when coming from low-risk areas.
