HCMC – Four days after resuming dine-in services, Long An Province continued to ask restaurants, food stalls, eateries and coffee shops in some districts to offer takeaway services only from midnight, June 23, instead of providing in-person services to prevent the spread of Covid-19 as the province has detected several infections.
Under the decision issued on June 22, Duc Hoa, Ben Luc, Can Duoc, Can Giuoc and Chau Thanh districts and Tan An City must follow the suspension, the local media reported.
In other districts in the province, restaurants and eateries were encouraged to sell take-away food or drinks and asked not to serve over 10 persons at a time. Besides, they must adopt Covid-19 safety protocols, including maintaining a safe physical distancing of at least 1.5 meters.
Many nonessential services such as beauty salons, hair salons, sports centers and game shops, gyms and yoga centers and cinemas in Long An Province will remain suspended.
Earlier on June 19, the province ended the 14-day social distancing period for the five districts and the city in line with the Prime Minister’s Directive 15 and allowed dine-in services at coffee shops, food stalls and restaurants.
However, over the past three days, the province reported seven locally-infected Covid-19 cases in Duc Hoa and Ben Luc districts, taking the province’s total number of infections during the current fourth wave of the coronavirus since April 27 to 18.
