The city leader also asked heads of departments and sectors and chairpersons of the People’s Committees of districts, towns, communes and wards to tighten  COVID-19 prevention and control measure discipline in the new situation, and intensify dissemination and punishments.

Service establishments and indoor restaurants must strictly comply with the disease prevention regulations and close before 9pm daily.
