THUA THIEN HUE – The People’s Committee of Thua Thien-Hue Province has updated guidance on the monitoring of people traveling to the central province applicable from October 16.

The new guidance is based on the pandemic risk levels regulated by the Ministry of Health (MoH).

People coming to Covid-free areas, a.k.a. green areas, are recommended to have a negative test result valid for 72 hours, file a health declaration and self-monitor their health.

According to MoH’s website at nguyco.antoancovid.vn, people from Danang, Phu Yen or part of Hanoi, which are ranked as green zones, will apply the above regulations.

Meanwhile, people coming from low-risk yellow areas such as Quang Nam, Quang Tri or another part of Hanoi are recommended to have a negative test result valid for 72 hours and file a health declaration.

Persons who received two doses of a Covid vaccine or recovered from Covid within the past six months should self-monitor their health for seven days. Those who are unvaccinated or who received just the first dose shall be subject to medical supervision at their stay for seven days and continue to self-monitor their health for another week.

Those from high-risk (orange) and extremely-high-risk (red) zones such as Can Tho, Quang Binh, Gia Lai, HCMC, Binh Duong and Ba Ria-Vung Tau are subject to stricter regulations. They must show a negative test result and self-isolate at home.

People who are on official duty, diplomatic missions and investors are required to only have a negative test result valid for 72 hours and make a medical declaration, apart from getting the approval from the province.
