HCM CITY — Travel firms, hotels and lodgings, restaurants, shopping centres, and tourist sites need to follow evaluation indicators for assessment of COVID-19 infection risk amid the ongoing outbreak in the country, the HCM City Department of Tourism has said.

The indicators were issued by the Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control during the first wave, and have been revised slightly since, it said in a statement.

Guests who recently travelled to Đà Nẵng and other destinations are required to fill in a health declaration and contact information.

The two-meter physical distancing requirement has been halved.

Others such as provision of hand sanitisers and disinfectants, wearing of masks by employees and guests and temperature screening remain unchanged.

The evaluation indicators are useful for businesses to ensure the safety of staff, guests and the community, the department said.

It also said workers in the tourism industry should download the Bluezone app to identify people with potential risk of COVID-19 infection. —VNS
