QUẢNG NINH — The northern province of Quảng Ninh resumed the operation of inter-provincial coaches to areas free from the COVID-19 pandemic, except Hải Dương Province, and tourism activities on March 11, after 16 days without any new infections.
The province also encouraged tourist arrivals from localities nationwide, except those still imposing lockdowns and social distancing measures.
Cinemas, bars, pubs, internet and game shops, discotheques and karaoke parlours, apart from those in Đông Triều Town, are allowed to reopen and must seriously follow pandemic prevention and control measures as instructed by the Ministry of Health.
Tourism service facilities and religious establishments must also follow prevention measures in the new normal.
Earlier on March 3, Vân Đồn International Airport also reopened. It has so far welcomed eight domestic flights carrying 717 passengers. Nearly 27,000 Quảng Ninh people have also visited local destinations.
Those coming back to the province must fill in health declarations to mitigate infection risks.
Quảng Ninh is also keeping a close watch over border areas, trails and waterways to deal with illegal entries and the use of illegal migrant workers. — VNS
