Can Gio district, Ho Chi Minh city is developing a plan for authorities to consider the reopening of tourism after September 30 when the Covid-19 epidemic is now basically controlled.
Le Minh Dung, secretary of the Can Gio Party Committee, said during the first phase (from September 16 to October 31), in addition to the forms allowed to open on the city’s guidelines, the district also proposed pilot reopening of some activities such as fishing and aquaculture activities of local people, returning of traditional markets, etc.
Besides, Can Gio district will reopen a tour or tourist attraction to help recover the service sector, consider reopening outdoor leisure activities, on-site dining with a small scale (under 20 people), ensuring regulations of social distance based on disease control levels, and recommendations of the healthcare industry. According to Mr. Dung, the district’s requirement is that they must have criteria to control each service they open.
To recover tourism, Mr. Dung said the district had a plan to build a self-contained tour, a closed route; passengers would be only allowed to stay in certain areas. The first pilot tour is expected to open in Can Gio by September 30.
