Life is so challenging
Lockdown and Quarantine both words seem the vocabularies from dictionary and never been alive. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, many cities have imposed the stringent epidemic control measures: Lockdown means suspend all the activities in a city and people have to stay at their homes. While quarantine mean people have to separate from the local up to 21 days.
What’s happening in Southern China – Dongguan
Dongguan has imposed strict COVID-19 control measures last week. Only in China, there is a term LOCKDOWN ON-SPOT. That is, when the Epidemic Prevention Bureau find out or someone reported there is a confirmed case within the residential estate, town, village, office buildings, shopping malls or even at the gym. They will preform all measures and lock you down on the spot no matter where you are. Somehow, we’ve just experienced lock down in the office.
Our Centre O China office teammates just had an office lockdown adventure for 8 days. Happy to announced we are let out, no confirmed case within the office, and we all survived. We would say the good thing is we are still allowed to order food deliveries, receiving Taobao shoppings, or even having families and friends delivering goods and food to us. All we can’t is to leave the town where the office is, or having any goods or documents or any person leaving the area until they releases everyone. Here, we share our extraordinary experience with you, and what to prepare in advance just incase if there’s another lockdown again.
What to prepare?
Here’s a tailor-made quarantine list if you are LOCKDOWN ON-SPOT in the office.
