As the COVID-19 outbreak develops, Shanghai's travel and quarantine policies develop. The Shanghai government has added eight more countries (UK, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Norway, the Netherlands, Denmark and Austria) to their list of hotspots, according to an announcement published today on their WeChat. That brings the total to 16, in addition to South Korea, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, Japan, Spain and the United States. Travelers to Shanghai who have been in any of these countries in the last 14 days will be asked to complete quarantine either at home or at designated quarantine facilities. This is not the voluntary self-quarantine, but a mandatory and enforceable quarantine. The announcement also mentions that Shanghai will amend the list of high-risk countries as the situation develops.

    Hey guys, do you have any more information on which the "designated hotels" are and what prices to expect? I've go flight tickets for end of April to Shanghai. I don't want to sound stingy, but staying 2 weeks in some overpriced fancy 5-star hotel wouldn't be ideal for me and my wallet..

    @lennart_j we can't say which hotels specifically, but they certainly aren't 5-star, more like your average business hotel. However, their star rating is irrelevant, as they are being operated as quarantine centers, not as hotels. Prices quoted in state media suggest it costs 200-400rmb per day, though it's not clear if this includes both accommodation and food or just accommodation.
