How to Safely Use Courier Pick-up and Delivery Services During Covid-19
Currently, with sporadic Covid-19 cases emerging across China, the epidemic situation in Beijing remains complex and challenging. Citizens are advised to heed the following when using courier pick-up and delivery services:
During Covid-19 prevention and control, please refrain from mail ordering goods from high-risk areas abroad unless absolutely necessary, and be cautious about ordering goods by mail from domestic areas where local confirmed cases have been reported.
I. We advocate contactless delivery.
People who wish to send or pick up parcels from residential communities or workplaces equipped with smart parcel lockers are advised to make full use of such lockers.
II. Wear a mask when picking up or sending parcels and minimize contact with others.
It is advised to have parcels placed at a designated site for contactless pick-up. If a parcel needs to be signed for in person, please keep a safe distance of at least one meter from the courier.
III. When picking up or unpacking parcels, disinfect the outer packaging with chlorine disinfectant or medical alcohol, or wear disposable gloves to avoid touching the parcel directly with your hands.
Please unpack the parcel outdoors if possible and discard the outer packaging according to household garbage classification regulations rather than taking it home.
IV. After handling the parcel, remove your gloves and wash your hands.
Please rub your hands thoroughly according to the seven-step hand washing technique, and avoid touching your mouth, eyes and nose with uncleaned hands. It is essential to ensure fire safety when spraying alcohol-based products.
