HCMC – District 7 authorities have written to the HCMC government proposing piloting the easing of indoor dining restrictions in the district from October 10 until the city officially allows restaurants or eateries to offer dine-in services.
Over the past 15 days, 434 firms and household businesses outside the industrial and export processing zones with some 4,000 workers have restarted their operations in District 7 after a months-long lockdown, according to District 7.
The district’s proposal to allow the resumption of indoor dining services will facilitate the city’s plan to gradually reopen its economy, the local media reported.
According to the proposal, restaurants should operate at a maximum 30% of their capacity and serve up to 20 guests at a time.
To offer indoor dining services, restaurants must ensure that their employees and customers are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or have recovered from the disease within the past six months.
In addition, they will be encouraged to use airy spaces and no air-conditioners to prevent the potential spread of Covid-19.
They will have to commit to meeting all Covid safety requirements and install surveillance cameras and connect them with District 7’s surveillance system to monitor their compliance.
