Abstract

When the whole country faces the outbreak of COVID-19, Chinese local governments have issued a policy response, making an effort from two aspects: plague prevention and work resumption. This research collects 427 policy text, using text analysis research method, according to the theory of policy tools, describing selection and application of policy tools in Chinese provincial capitals, and analyse the advantages and disadvantages in the implementation process. The research found that the subsidy measures among the hybrid policy tools are used most frequently, mostly for resuming work and production. While voluntary and mandatory policy tools are mostly used for plague prevention. Regulations measures are the most widely used. All kinds of policy tools have their own advantages and disadvantages. Based on this, this article puts forward three suggestions, which are improving the system of policy tools, comprehensively using multiple policy tools, and giving full play to the role of the market.
