It is strictly forbidden to block or close expressways and ordinary roads without authorization, and do not close expressway service areas and toll booths without authorization.

If the expressway service area really needs to be closed due to confirmed cases or close contacts, it should be reported to the provincial-level joint prevention and control mechanism before it can be implemented; The joint prevention and control mechanism above the level can be implemented only after it has been reported to the higher-level joint prevention and control mechanism for approval.

  4. Strengthen information release.

If service areas and toll stations are closed, they shall be released to the public in advance, and relevant information such as detour routes shall be released in a timely manner.

Provincial-level transportation authorities shall, before 9:00 a.m. every day, publicize the closure and closure of service areas and toll stations in their respective jurisdictions through various channels such as government portals, government WeChat public accounts, and newspapers and periodicals.

  5. After the service area and toll station are closed, actively cooperate with relevant departments to complete the work of personnel isolation, precise flow adjustment, rapid disposal, and comprehensive terminal disinfection as soon as possible, and resume operation immediately after passing the acceptance of the territorial joint prevention and control mechanism. .

  6. Standardize the setting of road checkpoints for epidemic prevention.

It is strictly forbidden to set up more than 2 (inclusive) epidemic prevention checkpoints in the same direction of the same section of ordinary highways. Set up epidemic prevention checkpoints on the main lines and service areas of expressways, and strictly prohibit simplistic and "one size fits all" prevention and control measures.

  7. Cooperate with health and other departments to set up sufficient nucleic acid and antigen testing points in the vicinity of highway epidemic prevention checkpoints, and set up nucleic acid testing points in expressway service areas with large traffic flow.

  8. Strictly implement the "three-in-one prevention" requirements for personnel, items, and the environment, and block the transmission of five types of viruses: disinfect public contact areas at any time to prevent cross-transmission of public contacts; wash hands frequently in accordance with the "seven-step method" under running water conditions , to block the spread of hands; employees in key positions wear goggles and protective glasses to block the transmission of eyes, mouth and nose; employees who touch money and bills wear gloves and wash their hands and disinfect at any time to block the spread of money and bills; all staff wear masks , Do everything possible to avoid gatherings of people, open windows in public places for ventilation, and block the spread of droplets.

  10. Improve and perfect the regular notification system, strengthen the monitoring and unannounced visits of the establishment of epidemic prevention checkpoints in various cities, the closure of service areas and toll stations, the delay of road congestion, and the implementation of traffic service guarantee policies, and timely detection of road traffic epidemic prevention and control and services Guarantee the weak links in the work and urge relevant units to rectify and implement them seriously.

2. Outdoor road service area

  11. Service areas with large passenger flow should use various methods to release information in advance, take measures to appropriately control the number of vehicles and personnel entering the area, and guide the public to balance distribution to non-busy or crowded service areas along the line to ensure epidemic prevention safety and service quality.

  12. Strengthen vehicle parking management and implement zoned parking.

Conditional service areas can be set up for high- and medium-risk areas and cold-chain logistics vehicles parking areas and rest areas for drivers and passengers, install dedicated mobile toilets, outdoor toilets, or set up temporary special service areas for trucks such as container transport vehicles to implement closed-loop manage.

  13. The key epidemic-related areas may, in light of the actual situation, set up material transfer stations in qualified expressway service areas, and make announcements to the public in a timely manner.

For those that need to be established across provinces, neighboring provinces should give support.

In principle, material transfer stations should be set up in low-risk areas, and closed-loop management should be implemented to ensure that vehicles are strictly disinfected, personnel are not contacted, and operations are not crossed.

  14. Seriously do a good job in nucleic acid testing, toileting, catering, fueling and other service guarantees for personnel stranded in epidemic-related vehicles in the service area.

During the closure of expressway service areas, under the overall guidance of the provincial-level joint prevention and control mechanism, basic public service functions such as refueling shall continue to be retained.

  15. Gas stations should minimize self-service refueling services to prevent drivers and passengers from getting off the bus and walking around, so as to "walk quickly".

Refueling channels for vehicles in epidemic-related areas can be set up in service areas where conditions permit.

  16. Strengthen the cleaning management of the site, implement the requirements for garbage classification, and set up special recycling bins for discarded masks. The rest of the garbage should be managed by classification, stored at designated locations, cleaned and transported in time, and the surrounding area of ​​temporary garbage storage should be kept clean.

Garbage generated by inbound personnel, confirmed cases, suspected cases, asymptomatic infections, etc., shall be disposed of according to the requirements of the territorial joint prevention and control mechanism.

Scientifically adjust the functional blocks of the complex building, optimize the organization of indoor passenger flow routes, and ensure that passengers can "get in and out quickly" in each functional area, and do not pass through other functional areas unless necessary to avoid cross-flow of people.

If conditions permit, public restrooms and restaurants, convenience stores and other business areas should be separated to reduce crowds.

Public restrooms are set up independently of the complex building, and ventilation and disinfection should be strengthened. Drivers and passengers can only enter after having their body temperature measured and wearing masks.

To ensure the normal operation of water supply facilities such as faucets in public toilets, hand sanitizers and hand sanitizers should be provided for drivers and passengers if conditions permit.

  19. The comprehensive building should be set up with exits and entrances (passages), and special persons should be arranged at the entrances (passages) to conduct body temperature measurement and check the itinerary code and health code (health certificate).

For those with abnormal body temperature or health code, not wearing a mask, refusing to provide the itinerary code, health code (health certificate), they will be refused entry into the complex building.

  20. Optimize the inspection service, improve the efficiency of registration and inspection and reduce the gathering of people by setting up intelligent body temperature detection equipment and posting health QR codes in advance.

The staff at the entrance (passage) should provide services such as checking health codes on behalf of the elderly and children who do not know how to use or do not have smartphones, and assist in filling in information.

  21. According to the requirements of the local health department, select a suitable area to standardize the establishment of a temporary isolation area, and cooperate with the staff of the health department to guide and manage abnormal personnel.

Drivers and passengers whose body temperature is higher than 37.3°C or who have symptoms of vomiting, fatigue and diarrhea should immediately report to the local joint prevention and control mechanism.
