Stipulations for holiday
While employees are being persuaded to stay where they work during the Spring Festival holiday, which falls in mid-February this year, many places have released rules for homecomings.
Deputy head of the National Health Commission Zeng Yixin called on people to stay where they live and work during the holiday to reduce personnel flow.
The approaching Spring Festival holiday will see more returnees from overseas, gatherings, and imports of cold-chain food and cargo, which will bring more challenges to epidemic prevention and control efforts, Zeng said at a press conference on Saturday.
Wuhan, Hubei province, said on Saturday that in order to return to the city, one needs to be from a low-risk region and offer a negative nucleic acid test result from within the previous seven days.
