These steps should be taken when sending and receiving packages in the special period

In the past two years, it has been found that the coronavirus can be transmitted through “object-to-person” contact, but it is not the main mode of transmission of the coronavirus. Keeping your hands clean can effectively reduce the risk of getting infected with the coronavirus.

For the general public, please note the following points:

● Express delivery is preferred without contact. After removing the outer packaging, you need to clean your hands.

● Wear a mask and gloves when you go out to collect a package and keep one meter away from others.

● The outer packaging of the package must not be brought indoors. If you do want to bring it in, you can use disinfectant wipes or a disinfectant spray, etc.

● Be sure to wash your hands under running water or wipe them with hand sanitizer after removing the outer packaging.

For those engaged in the express delivery industry, please pay attention to the following points:

● Couriers should keep abreast of the risk level of the epidemic in the area where they are responsible for sending and receiving packages. Check the quantity and quality of PPE such as protective suits, masks, gloves and hand disinfectant before starting work, and measure body temperature; if abnormal body temperature occurs, please report to the employer and seek prompt medical advice.

● Try to use non-contact methods such as smart express boxes for sending and receiving mail and express mail. Wear a surgical mask during the entire work period. Replace the mask promptly when it gets wet or dirty.

● Wear a mask and keep a safe distance from others when in an elevator compartment.

● Those who suffer from respiratory diseases should try to go out as little as possible, and if you need to go out, you should wear a mask properly and follow guidelines about hand sanitation.

● Reduce participation in events such as gatherings and parties. Reduce visits to closed, airless public places and crowded places.
