  In this regard, Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said on April 1 that during the Qingming Festival holiday, it is not recommended to travel across provinces.

For places where there is no epidemic, the best way to travel is to choose self-driving.

If you take public transport, you must pay attention to personal protection on the way, wear a mask, maintain hand hygiene, maintain social distance, etc.
