A Hanoi district and wards in some others have suspended non-essential activities and only allow food and drink takeaways due to heightened coronavirus risks.
Downtown Hai Ba Trung District, along with five wards of Hoan Kiem District and two wards in Tay Ho District, have suspended non-essential activities and only allow food and beverage establishments to do takeaways starting 12 p.m. Sunday. The decision came just a few hours after Hanoi announced the areas to have high coronavirus risks.
According to the municipal People’s Committee, all sport and physical exercise activities in these locations would be suspended. 12th graders, students in vocational schools and continuing education facilities would switch to online classes until further notice.
Religious institutions and other places of worships would go online as well. Activities that require in-person participation could only allow no more than 20 people at the time, perform medical declaration through QR codes, and all participants must either be fully vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19.
Residence facilities like hotels must not exceed half their maximum capacity, and their owners and employees must either be fully vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19. Groups going to tourist attractions must not exceed 10 people.
Hai Ba Trung authorities have also requested to limit non-essential meetings and conferences with large gatherings and encouraged online solutions. Workers should work in alternate shifts (except for armed forces or health workers) in order to prevent infection.
People are advised to stay home unless for essential reasons and avoid large gatherings.
Since October 13, Hanoi’s Dong Da and Hoang Mai, along with certain wards in Hoan Kiem and Tay Ho, have suspended non-essential activities to stave off a Covid-19 surge at the capital.
The city still remains at medium coronavirus risks, with two districts, Dong Da and Hai Ba Trung, at high coronavirus risks.
Hanoi has recorded daily coronavirus cases above 1,000 in recent days. Over 25,000 cases have been recorded in the capital in the fourth wave.
