Experts urge the public to reduce outdoor activities, especially crowd gathering. Avoid using public transportation and open windows for ventilation when driving a private car. Do not go to public places with enclosed space and poor ventilation. Avoid touching items in public places. Wear a mask when going out and wash hands first when back home. As enterprises resume operation, more people will visit and return to Jiangsu who are urged to log in to the Health Declaration System for Visitors and Returnees to Jiangsu as soon as possible and declare their health conditions every morning and evening.
