Security uphold tough Chinese regulations to check for coronavirus symptoms at the RT office gate as staff return to work.

Following a period of mandatory lockdown since January 28, Chinese businesses and factories are getting back to work. However, the potential threat of the coronavirus COVID-19 means that places where big numbers of people congregate, such as schools and restaurants, will remain closed.

Here at RT, all staff have returned safe and well, but as with all other businesses, it is a government requirement that body temperature checks are administered upon arrival at the external site (see photo) and again inside the office at least twice a day. Staff must also wear face masks. Officials will also visit workplaces to conduct unannounced, spot checks.
