Should I Travel During National Week? 

Deputy head of China’s CDC, Wu Liang, has urged people not to travel, unless absolutely necessary.

However, assuming you meet all the necessary anti-epidemic requirements, there is nothing to stop you from traveling, if you so desire. 

Remember that to go anywhere by plane, rail, inter-provincial tour group or inter-provincial passenger ship, you must have a negative nucleic acid test result issued within 48 hours. 

And be sure to double check any other rules before setting off.
