The administration of Da Nang City in central Vietnam has allowed markets to reopen and food joints to receive online orders in green zones from 8:00 am Sunday, provided they follow a new list of social distancing regulations issued by local authorities.
The green zones are wards and communes with no coronavirus infections for 14 consecutive days.
Every household in those zones will be provided with shopping tickets, which contains a quick response code, and can visit markets once every five days.
Restaurants and food joints can receive and deliver online orders.
They must ensure distances between delivery workers, who come to the facilities to pick up orders.
Residents of the green zones can also exercise and walk outdoors and participate in other forms of physical training in public places from 5:00 am to 7:00 am every day.
People living in yellow zones, or areas at low risk of infections, can shop for food and medicine at grocery and drug stores within their neighborhood in person, using a quick response travel pass.
They can also use app-based grocery shopping and delivery services to purchase goods from shopping centers, supermarkets, convenience stores and points of sale organized by authorities.
Color reference for communes and wards is available in this online map, while the registration for quick response travel passes can be made at the People’s Committee of each ward and commune.
All people in green and yellow zones must bring travel passes and personal documents along when traveling outdoors, except those participating in funeral services and exercise activities.
People living in red zones, or areas at very high-risk of infections, must continue following the shelter-in-place mandate that have been in place for 20 days.
Da Nang authorities composed the new list of social distancing regulations as the mandate is set to expire at 8:00 am Sunday.
The city have recorded 4,477 coronavirus infections since this new bout erupted in Vietnam on April 27.
