As the Spring Festival approaches, at least seven provinces and municipalities across China have issued notices to encourage local residents to avoid travel and stay put during the holidays by Monday as the annual Spring Festival travel rush is the world's largest human migration, which could increase risks of accelerating the virus transmission.
 

This comes as several cities have seen resurgences of the COVID-19 outbreak. Surging cases in places like Central China's Henan and Northwest China's Shaanxi and the first scale battle against Omicron in North China's Tianjin pose increasing uncertainties for overall anti-epidemic work.
 

The seven places, including Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Central China's Henan, East China's Zhejiang provinces and South China's Guangxi Zhuang, North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous regions.
 

The Beijing government issued a notice on Thursday encouraging citizens to stay put during the upcoming Spring Festival. All residents are required to cancel nonessential trips and not to leave the city unless necessary.
 

In view of the upcoming Winter Olympic Games and the domestic epidemic as well as epidemic overseas, the Beijing Center for Disease Control is encouraging local residents to stay put and reduce nonessential traveling in order to guarantee the health and safety of all residents during the holiday, according media reports on Monday.
 

Earlier, Tianjin asked its residents "not to leave unless necessary," especially for people from affected areas. On this basis, people from non-epidemic-affected areas are encouraged to stay put during the upcoming Spring Festival in Tianjin.
 

Some cities said they will offer subsidies to those who are willing to stay put during the holidays ranging from 500 yuan ($78) to 1,000 yuan ($156).
 

Hefei, the city in East China's Anhui province, announced on Sunday that it will give 1,000 yuan to eligible non-local residents working in the city to encourage them to stay. Enterprises in Ningbo, the city in East China's Zhejiang province, are encouraged to take measures such as granting subsidies, ensuring accommodation, and improving the dining environment during the Spring Festival to increase the enthusiasm of non-local employees to stick to their posts during the Spring Festival.
 

就地过年,发钱!

面对国内本土疫情威胁,多地在近期提出“非必要不返乡”,或鼓励“就地过年”。
 

1月10日,北京市人民政府办公厅正式发布关于2022年春节放假安排的通知,其中明确提出“倡导市民群众在京过年,非必要不出京”。

此前,辽宁省疾控中心也提出,非必要不离辽,非必要不前往报告新冠肺炎本土确诊病例和无症状感染者地区。
 

上海则明确除返乡探亲、必要公务等以外,非必要不离沪、非必要不出境,鼓励在沪过节,尽量减少人员流动。
 

在内蒙古自治区新冠肺炎疫情防控指挥部近日发布的公告中,除了明确鼓励公众就地过年,还强调全区党员领导干部、机关事业单位、国有企业等工作人员带头落实在当地过年。
