The province of Lam Dong in the central highlands, where the famous resort of Da Lat is located, has reopened tourist destinations, restaurants and accommodation for travelers within the province from Tuesday.

The decision came after the province essentially got the outbreak under control on July 2, more than two months since the first community broadcast was recorded during the ongoing wave.

From Tuesday 5:00 p.m., restaurants, cafeterias, cafes and street restaurants can serve customers without exceeding half their coverage, while accommodations from two-star category must ensure measures for pandemic prevention, such as: B. no more than two people per room.

Provincial authorities also allowed barber shops and beauty salons to resume operations, but not to exceed half of their coverage.

Since July, Lam Dong authorities have closed all tourist attractions and accommodations as a pandemic prevention measure. Lam Dong has recorded 259 infections since the fourth wave of coronavirus began in late April.

Da Lat in the central highlands is known for its year-round cool climate, green pine forests, misty landscapes and architectural gems from the colonial era.

It received seven million tourists in 2019.

Since Monday, Hoi An, a popular tourism hotspot in central Vietnam, has also allowed restaurants and cafes to resume operations with strict restrictions after the city went out for a month without new Covid-19 cases.
