At least 21 province-level administrative entities in China have mandated delays to the resumption of standard work hours by enterprises within their jurisdiction as part of efforts to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus.
These province-level entities include Hubei and Hunan, as well as Guangdong, Shanghai, Chongqing, Jiangsu and Zhejiang.
Hubei – whose capital city is Wuhan – has delayed its work resumption date to 13 February, while the remaining provinces have shifted the work resumption date to 9 February for all or some enterprises.
On 27 January the State Council also issued a notice calling for the 2020 Spring Festival Vacation to be extended to 2 February, in order to help contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
