Bac Giang resumes tourism activities from October 4

The northern province of Bac Giang, which has gone through 30 days without any COVID-19 infection in the community, allowed its tourism sites and one golf course to reopen for visitors from pandemic-free localities nationwide on October 4.

The move is done in a bid to gradually resume socio-economic activities in the province, according to the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

To enter the province, tourists must be fully vaccinated and need to provide a negative testing result within 72 hours. Meanwhile, all local tourism sites are required to seriously follow pandemic prevention regulations, including the Ministry of Health’s 5K message.

Earlier, Bac Giang lifted its temporary close order on businesses, eateries, some education establishments, and spa and massage service facilities. The authorities also allowed the resumption of sport activities.

Bac Giang is accelerating the vaccination drive, with 609,220 doses of the vaccine given to date, covering 32.6 percent of the local population./.
