Dear foreign friends,
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, the Jiaxing Municipal Government, under the leadership of the Central Government and Zhejiang Provincial Government, has been putting the lives and health of its people first. By following an "open, cooperative, coordinated, and win-win" model, Jiaxing has taken measures to prevent and control the epidemic and has managed to maintain stable social and economic development. We have also received close cooperation and support from foreign nationals. We would hereby like to sincerely thank you for your help.
At this critical time, as the epidemic remains severe, we care deeply about the health of you and your family and would like to strengthen our cooperation.
We suggest the following:
Follow official information
Although the overall situation of the epidemic is improving in China, the risk posed by COVID-19 has been updated to "very high" at a global level by the WHO. International flights are subject to change without prior notice and certain quarantine measures might be taken at borders. Please follow authorized information released by the official sites and official WeChat accounts of the Chinese and Jiaxing governments.
Inform others of your travel plans
If you have upcoming plans to travel to Jiaxing, please contact your company, community, or friends to get the latest information about the epidemic. Please tell them when you will enter China and when you will arrive in Jiaxing, and we will provide you with travel recommendations. If you are currently in a severely affected country or region, you are advised to postpone your visit.
Submit a health declaration
Because there is still a risk of infection, regardless of whether you are already in or planning to enter Jiaxing, please inform authorities in the development zone, town, or sub-district where your company is located of your health status and travel history over the past 14 days.
Take self-protection measures
Please remain vigilant and take self-protection precautions while traveling. Do not participate in public gatherings and avoid crowded places. Reduce outdoor activities as much as possible, and wear masks when going out. If symptoms such as fever, cough, headache, fatigue, or dyspnea occur, please notify your community or company and seek immediate medical treatment at designated hospitals.
Keep close contact
Should you have any questions or complaints, please contact the Foreign Affairs Office of the Jiaxing Municipal People's Government for help via our 24-hour service hotline at 0086-15988330595 (Chinese) or 0086-18268483571 (English).
We wish you and your family health and happiness!
