HCM City loosens pandemic control measures in specific areas

Ho Chi Minh City will continue to apply social distancing measures in a strict and effective manner in particular areas from September 16 to 30 with adjustments to suit specific districts and wards.


Accordingly, in areas where COVID-19 is put under good control, including District 7, Cu Chi and Can Gio districts as well as export processing zones and industrial parks in the High-Tech Park in Thu Duc city, locals are allowed to go out to buy food once per week.

Meanwhile, COVID-19 “green card” with QR codes will be piloted in areas where the pandemic is basically controlled.

Under the document issued by the Ho Chi Minh People’s committee, shippers are allowed to operate in districts and Thu Duc city from 6am to 9pm each day, the same as companies and business households in specific sectors, including postal and telecommunications services, learning equipment, take-way catering services and food supply./.
