The Prime Minister allowed non-essential service establishments to resume operations but with the necessary preventive measures in place and allowed the reopening of minor border checkpoints to ease the movement of food and agricultural products.


  • With no new community transmission case of COVID-19 for more than two weeks, the Government sees the resumption of socio-economic activities as the urgent task now.
  • The decision has been taken to open almost all services. Among the list of non-essential services that are permitted to resume operation, clubs and karaoke parlours are excluded at this stage.
  • Several minor border checkpoints in northern Lang Son and Quang Ninh provinces that share border with China have been granted permission to reopen.
  • Local authorities in other provinces with border checkpoints are allowed to decide on the reopening of the minor border checkpoints and border crossings provided that measures on COVID-19 prevention and control are strictly observed.
