Dear foreign friends in Wuxi,

Thank you for your contributions to the social and economic development of Wuxi! Wuxi is currently experiencing confirmed Covid-19 cases resulting from infected people traveling from other places, and the whole city has responded immediately and handled the situation in a timely manner. However, there is still uncertainty about the epidemic and we are facing severe and complex challenges. In order to effectively apply epidemic prevention and control measures, block the spread of Covid-19, and strive to contain the epidemic as quickly as possible, we call for your and all Wuxi citizens' support and participation. To strengthen our Covid-19 response endeavors and safeguard the health and safety of you and your family, here are some friendly reminders:

1. Support the Covid-19 response measures. Currently, Wuxi is conducting epidemiological investigation and source tracing, personnel screening and management, antigen self-testing, nucleic acid testing, and management and disinfection of key places. Once a confirmed case or asymptomatic carrier is identified, the Disease Prevention and Control Department will conduct epidemiological investigation and disinfection of relevant places. Please cooperate with government staff, community workers and medical staff when they contact you for more information.

2. Obey the epidemic prevention and control regulations. Please abide by the relevant requirements of Wuxi's Covid-19 response while staying in Wuxi, follow the epidemic situation closely, encourage others to protect themselves and others, strictly adhere to the requirements of "staying indoors" in high-risk areas and "staying within residential quarters" in medium-risk areas, follow the management of the community and the employer, and cooperate with control measures and the examination at railway stations, airports and expressway entries.

3. Take daily personal protection and precautionary measures. Please wear disposable medical face masks, wash your hands often, breath in fresh air when possible and maintain social distancing.
