Experts note that at the current new stage of pandemic control, it is necessary to take prevention of imported cases as the top priority and advance prevention in a coordinated manner. Concrete measures for targeted control should be adopted while promoting full resumption of normal order of production and life.
To further minimize the risk of importing cases, all Jiangsu-bound travelers should comply with relevant regulations, fulfill their responsibilities by truthfully declaring their health conditions and travel histories, and make health declaration via “Jiangsu Health Code”. All those who have travelled to or lived in “key countries under surveillance” coming to Jiangsu should follow the regulations released via notices by the Foreign Affairs Office of Jiangsu Provincial People’s Government. Those who visited or returned to Jiangsu from abroad should seek treatment at designated fever clinics as soon as possible, if symptoms such as fever and cough occur, and report their whereabouts in the previous two weeks.
Everyone bears the primary responsibility for their own health. The public is advised to keep precautions in place; develop good hygiene habits including washing hands and ventilating homes and offices frequently; and follow proper cough etiquette. The whole society should be involved in the national campaign for sanitation while the public should increase their awareness of science-based pandemic control and develop a healthy lifestyle.
Different population groups should follow the precautionary recommendations and tips included in the Guidelines on the Proper Use of Masks by the Public, and wear a mask in the right way at different places and under various circumstances. This will both protect themselves and benefit public health.
