Notification for Jiangsu-bound travelers
The safety and health of everyone in Jiangsu has always been our top priority. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, the province has been taking effective actions to curb the spread of the virus. Now is a critical moment in this global struggle. It is the responsibility of every country to unite as one to fight this common enemy. To this end, we want to work with you to protect our cities, safeguard the health of every individual, and create a safe and reliable environment in which people can live and work without fear.
Please follow the requirements of the health authorities and visit designated sites for centralized quarantine. Daily necessities will be prepared and delivered to those who must home quarantine.
Please be aware that it is important to protect yourself even after quarantine ends. Individuals should go out as little as possible, avoid gatherings, refrain from going to parties or dining in crowded places, wear a mask correctly when going out, wash hands and ventilate rooms frequently, and maintain good hygiene habits.
Please keep a close watch on not only your own health but also that of your family. Take your temperature regularly, visit a nearby fever clinic right away if you experience symptoms such as fever, cough or fatigue, and truthfully report your travel history and close contacts to your doctor.
We wish you and your family good health!
