Two sets of cross-sectional surveys were conducted among the general public and live poultry traders (LPTs) during January-February, 2014, to monitor attitudes toward human cases of avian influenza A(H7N9)-related control measures among these 2 parties in Guangzhou, China. We found generally high support for regular market rest days among the general public and LPTs, but only limited support for permanent central slaughtering of poultry. LPTs' support for relevant control measures declined after the citywide wet market closure.
Keywords: Central slaughtering; Influenza A (H7N9); Rest days.
