For 57-year-old Hu Dongting, the Spring Festival is a once-in-a-year reunion moment with his wife and son in their Jiangsu Province hometown. But this year, he responded to the government’s call to stay put over the holiday.

“My wife has been living in Jiangsu since 2005 as she’s in poor health. Like me, my son is also a migrant worker. We cherish every moment of reunion,” he said. “I miss them so much. But I understand that safety is the priority. So, three of us all decided to stay put.”

Pu Hui, 44, and his wife Ding Yuexia, 42, came from Anhui Province. They had planned to see their two children back in their hometown during the Spring Festival holiday. Considering the risks posed by gatherings, they decided to stay in Shanghai. To comfort them, the company sent migrant workers gifts and food, as well as free access to the Internet so they can video chat with their families.
