A Letter to JNU Foreign Experts
Dear foreign experts,
2020 has been an extraordinary year for all of us. Together we were faced with the pandemic outbreak and the uncertainties brought by it. Thank you all for standing along and working with us. We appreciate that you keep on with your research and teaching despite all the difficulties. With our joint efforts, surely we will win this battle soon.
However, the struggle is not over yet. The pandemic still rages overseas and reoccurs in China at times. Please continue to stay vigilant and healthy, and take heed of the latest regulations of the university regarding pandemic prevention. For the coming winter break, we would like to share with you the following suggestions:
1. Pay close attention to personal hygiene and self-protection.
-Please keep good hygiene by washing hands correctly and regularly with soap and running water for at least 15 seconds, especially:
After using the toilet
After returning home,
After touching trash or garbage
After petting, feeding handling or having any other contact with animals, their living quarters or their waste.
-Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or you can cough or sneeze into your sleeve, but avoid covering your face with your hands. No spitting. Dispose of used masks appropriately.
-Maintain proper ventilation and keep rooms clean.
-Avoid contact with wild animals or farm livestock without any protection.
-Eggs and meat must be thoroughly cooked before consumption.
2. Minimize outdoor activities.
-Strengthen your immune system and exercise regularly.
-Avoid crowded places, parties and group activities. If you must attend one, correctly wear your surgical mask.
-Avoid close contact with people who have flu or cold-like symptoms.
3. Cooperate with the medical staff.
-If you arrive in Guangzhou from other places or have visited areas listed as medium- or high-risk regions, please conduct self-quarantine for a 14-day observation without attending any meetings, gatherings or group activities. Please keep the university updated with your latest health conditions. Please cooperate with local government or community personnel or medical staff if they inquire about your condition.
-If you have symptoms such as fever, cough, breathing difficulty or fatigue, please seek medical assistance in the nearest designated hospital with your mask on, and avoid using public transportation. Meanwhile, report your condition to Jinan University immediately. Please inform the medical staff with your travel history of the previous 14 days and whether you had contact with confirmed cases. Please follow medical instructions, and support epidemiological survey if required.
Thank you very much for your understanding, support and cooperation.
We wish you all a very happy Chinese New Year!
