HCMC – The government of Bao Loc City in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong today, June 3, decided to revoke the business registration certificate of the Minh Chau Asian beauty spa as it held a mass gathering at its inauguration ceremony, while the country is fighting the raging Covid-19.
On June 1, Ward 1 in Bao Loc City told the spa to suspend its inauguration until further notice to prevent Covid-19 from spreading, but the spa proceeded with its opening and more than 30 guests showed up at the ceremony, posing a high risk of community spread, according to the municipal government’s announcement.
Apart from temporarily revoking its business license, Ward 1 was assigned to work with the competent agencies to suspend the operations of the Minh Chau Asian spa at 42 Nguyen Cong Tru Street in Ward 1, owned by Le Ngoc Hoang Thy, who lives in HCMC’s Thu Duc City.
At 6.30 p.m. on June 1, the Bao Loc police visited the Minh Chau Asian spa during its inauguration ceremony to check compliance with anti-virus protocols and discovered 31 persons had gathered at the site. The people who came from many provinces and cities, including HCMC, Hanoi, Quang Ninh, Bac Giang, Binh Duong, Lao Cai and Thanh Hoa, had yet to make health declarations.
Besides, many of them did not follow the requirements for masking, handwashing, social distancing, avoiding large gatherings and health declaration, the local media reported.
