Tourism authorities in Binh Thuan Province, located in south-central Vietnam, have issued a set of safety assessment criteria for lodging accommodations, tourist sites, and food establishments to reopen in ‘new normal’ conditions.

On Wednesday night, the Binh Thuan Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism allowed the tourism sector to reopen while adhering to the COVID-19 control requirements in the locality.

Tourists who wish to travel to the coastal province have to be fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19.

To avoid the transmission of the virus, travel agencies must plan tests for guests on the first and seventh days after their arrival.

Each facility must have at least one designated 'quarantine room' and 'waiting room,' both of which must have some personal protective equipment (PPE) for staff.

Managers and employees can come into contact with tourists only if they have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days or have recovered from COVID-19.

Staff who do not have contact with tourists must have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Unvaccinated staff can merely work remotely.

In low-risk zones, establishments from all types of services are exempt from all operating restrictions. The remaining areas are still barred from returning to normal operations.

Aside from tourism, the municipal government allows facilities that meet all safety requirements to host weddings, ceremonies, or any other form of gathering.

Vietnam has gradually reopened its economy after daily infections have plummeted over the past weeks and the country's vaccination campaign has accelerated, with almost 72 million vaccine shots have been administered to a population of about 98 million people.
