Dear Valued Customers and Partners,

We have received news that Shanghai (China) will be going into a two phase lockdown over nine days due to COVID-19 outbreak.

With case counts climbing, the city government said in a public notice that the two-part lockdown was being implemented “to curb the spread of the epidemic, ensure the safety and health of the people” and root out cases of infection “as soon as possible”.

The city’s sprawling eastern half, known as Pudong, which includes the main international airport and financial district, would be locked down for testing beginning Monday morning and ending 1 April.

On 1 April, the city’s western half, known as Puxi and featuring the historic Bund riverfront, will lock down until 5 April, the government added.

Residents were told to stay indoors during the lockdowns, and all business employees and government personnel not involved in the supply of essential services were advised to work from home.

Those involved with providing vital services such as gas, electricity, transport, sanitation and the supply of food would be exempt from the stay-at-home order.
