Plan for possible cargo shipment delays. Confirm all travel reservations; do not check out of hotels before verifying onward travel. Seek updated information on road conditions before driving between cities in the affected regions, and be prepared to postpone travel. Those with pulmonary or respiratory conditions should limit outdoor movement in the affected provinces to reduce exposure to polluted air until conditions improve; wear a facemask if operating outdoors is unavoidable.
