All construction sites should stop their work, and ships should anchor at docks or designated areas.
Operators of airports, airlines, railways, ports, long-distance coaches, passenger liners, ferries and subways should suspend services or make adjustments based on emergency plan requirements.
Working units should make proper arrangements for the schedules of employees given consideration to traffic difficulties resulting from bad weather and transportation changes.
