Those who do not wear masks may be refused entry to shopping malls and supermarkets
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- As Spring Festival approaches, more and more people are going to shopping malls and supermarkets to buy goods. What are the requirements for the prevention and control of COVID-19 in these commercial and business premises? Let’s have a look.
An emergency area should be set up in the relevant commercial and business premises; the necessary epidemic prevention materials should always be available; measures to limit the visitors and distance should be implemented; and epidemic prevention work should be done precisely.
Shopping malls, supermarkets and farmers’ (traditional) markets should strengthen ventilation and cleaning and disinfection in public areas. Farmers’ (traditional) markets should also improve sanitary facilities such as public toilets and garbage collection and hand-washing, as well as implement a daily cleaning system for stalls.
Shopping malls, supermarkets, farmers’ markets, restaurants, exhibition venues and other commercial and business premises should refuse entry to customers who are not wearing a mask.
Dining places should implement the responsibility of prevention and control in all aspects and strictly implement the system of inspection of incoming goods and the requirement of certificates and tickets. Staff should wear masks and advocate serving chopsticks and separate meals.
Large-scale exhibition activities must be reported to the leading team for epidemic prevention and control at the same level for approval, and epidemic prevention and control measures must be strictly implemented. At the same time, other consumer establishments such as petrol stations should also always have epidemic prevention and testing supplies such as masks, disinfectant and thermometers, and set up reasonable flow line to reduce the movement and gathering of people.
The public is suggested to wear gloves when selecting food of cold chain in shopping malls and supermarkets or picking goods from farmers’ markets, and self-service shopping with contactless QR Code payment is promoted. The public should keep a safe distance from the densely populated areas such as waiting areas, pick-up areas and checkout areas inside and outside dining places, and the use of reservations and non-contact ordering for checkout is promoted. If possible, restaurants should actively promote separate meals and offer serving chopsticks and spoons, and the dining time should not exceed two hours.
