China's civil aviation regulator released updated epidemic prevention guidance for airports and airline companies on Wednesday, loosening the requirement to wear full-body protective clothing for some staff members in open areas at airports.

According to the guideline from Civil Aviation Administration of China, workers in open areas such as parking bays and low-risk freight zones are not required to wear protective clothing if they do not have contact with people from inbound flights, including crew members and passengers, or if they avoid entering cabins or sharing bathrooms with high-risk staff members.

Workers doing maintenance outside passenger or cargo compartments are not required to wear goggles, face screens or protective clothing.

Those who work in aircraft cabins are required to continue to wear such clothing.

Many regions in China are experiencing hot weather during summer. Some workers have reportedly experienced heatstroke and have had to be hospitalized for treatment.
