One thing to clear: only China visas issued on or after March 28, 2020 are valid at present.
You need to get an Exit/Entry Health Declaration Form of the People's Republic of China before entering and it is available on the official website of the General Administration of Customs of P.R. China.

For more details, please see: www.travelchinaguide.com/china-travel-restrictions.htm
