Crowd gatherings like festival, religious ritual, sports event, will be suspended. Turnout at wedding and funerals should be minimized and must be conducted with precautionary measures.

Non-essential services namely karaoke lounge and bar will not be allowed.

Safety rules will be strongly demanded in public means of transport.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing continues to be taken for all returnees from Danang.
