Meanwhile, COVID-19 “green card” with QR codes will be piloted in areas where the pandemic is basically controlled.

Under the document, shippers are allowed to operate in districts and Thu Duc city from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day if they follow pandemic prevention and control measures, the same as companies and business households in specific sectors, including postal and telecommunications services, learning equipment, take-way catering services and food supply. Staff of the companies must stay in only one district.

At the same time, construction and transport projects will continue to be implemented under safety conditions promulgated by the city People’s Committee. Localities across the city can propose the resuming of construction of specific projects in accordance with the local pandemic situation.

The People’s Committees of District 7, Cu Chi and Can Gio districts were asked to re-open under their road-maps, while other localities were requested to propose plans to re-open a number of activities when safety regulations are met.
