Keep a Distance of One Meter in Public Spaces
Residents in the park wear masks, keep personal distances for exercise, and avoid crowds.
At present, public places in Xicheng District such as shopping malls, supermarkets, markets, restaurants, government affairs service halls, and office buildings are implementing the “maintaining at least one-meter distance” measure and people flow control to limit the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.
The reporter saw at the Taoranting branch of Wu Mart supermarket that there are “one-meter markers” at the checkout counter where people line up to keep them at least one meter away from each other. At the Xizhimen branch of Hualian supermarket, there are not only “one-meter markers” but also notes saying “Waiting in line is for the health of both you and your family.” At resident living service centers of Zhanlanlu Sub-district, there are “one-meter markers” in the temperature measurement area and the cashier area. And notices are posted outside the store and tips are broadcast in the store to require customers to queue up with one-meter distance between each other.
Many time-honored restaurants in Xicheng District sell takeout food outside now, and have posted “one-meter markers” at the checkout counter. Some stores also arrange a staff member to guide customers to maintain at least 1 meter distance between each other, and to remind them to use mobile payment methods such as Alipay and WeChat Pay as much as possible, which can reduce contact with cash.
With the resumption of work and production, more people go to government affairs service halls and office buildings, so there are “one-meter markers” in those places too. Xicheng District’s eight professional halls have implemented the “maintaining at least one-meter distance” measure to reduce contact between people and prevent cross-infection amid the novel coronavirus outbreak. Meanwhile, they publicize epidemic prevention and control knowledge by all means to those who go to handle business.
There are “one-meter markers” at the entrances of many commercial buildings in Beijing Financial Street too. People working in the buildings line up with one-meter distance between each other. Only by taking body temperature, showing the pass and registering personal information can a person be permitted to enter the building.
