Epidemic control guidelines for 16 industries in Xuhui

THE Xuhui District market watchdog has issued guidelines on epidemic prevention in 16 industries as local businesses gradually resume normal operations, officials said yesterday.

The district has nearly 10,000 streetside businesses and a third had opened as of yesterday, with the number growing daily, the Xuhui District Administration for Market Regulation said.

Restaurants are banned from procuring or selling wild animals and related products and are required to prepare cold or raw food only when an order is made, according to a guideline for the catering industry.

They should also increase disinfection time and frequency of ultraviolet lamps at business venues, the guideline states.

For beverage shops, operators are ordered to stop providing trial tasting, and encourage takeaway to prevent gatherings.

Supermarkets should have infrared temperature measurement devices, and cover unpacked food. And, consumers should not have direct contact with unpacked food.

Real estate broker agencies are encouraged to stagger visits, conduct online operations more and record health information of those looking at houses, the administration said.

A guideline targeting barbers states that shops should provide haircuts only and not other services such as shaving, dyeing, washing and manicures and arrange bookings to avoid too many people gathering at one time. Towels, scissors and other equipment should be disinfected after each use.

Banmu Huatian, a hair salon on Tianlin Road in Xuhui, resumed work on Thursday.

“Based on the instruction, we only provide haircut service at present, and no hair washing service is offered,” said Yang Jun, the manager.

“We have also reminded customers to bring their own towels, and we use reservations to limit the number of customers, and keep a safe distance in service,” he said.

Inspections of streetside businesses have been stepped up.

A car sales shop on Qinzhou Road S. was closed after it was found that its operator had just returned from a key infection area and had not undergone quarantine.

Refined management was also imposed on resumption of work at firms in the district.

Caohejing High-Tech Industrial Park in Xuhui has nearly 5,000 enterprises with about 40,000 white-collar workers.

The administration has released guidelines for canteens and elevator management targeting companies and inspections have covered 56 canteens already open in the park.

“Canteen operators in the park have actively responded to our calls, and 39 canteens canceled meal services on the spot with only takeaway food provided,” said Zhang Jie, director of the Caohejing Market Regulation Station.

“The remaining canteens stagger dining times and limit the number of diners to one for each table,” said Zhang.
