Tourists need stay still for Covid-19 prevention and control

BTO-When monotoring the situation of tourist flows in the locality, functional agencies have found that many foreign visitors are staying at local accommodation facilities. In addition, there are increasing number of people coming to Binh Thuan from other localities (that have Covid-19 outbreak) for traveling or visiting their relatives. These problems have caused many difficulties for functional bodies in taking preventive measures to contain the spread of the disease.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee on March 25 directed department of Culture-Sports and Tourism to coordinate with authorities of districts/city/town in mobilizing owners of accommodations to temporarily stop receiving domestic and foreign tourists who come from provinces/cities or countries with Covid-19 outbreaks. This restriction takes effect from now until of the provincial People’s Committee  issues new guideline. Those who are working in Binh Thuan are exception.

Accordingly, tourists at local hotels/resorts/guesthouses are recommended to stay still, not to go sightseeing and seriously observe all regulations relating to hygiene, and especially wear face masks in public places or when have close contact with others. Any violation cases will be strictly punished and publicly listed their names on mass media.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee also asked department of Transport to strengthen inspections and request passenger transport vehicles not to take tourists to and from Binh Thuan province now. Private enterprises are mobilized to temporarily suspend operation of restaurants, beer clubs, pubs, cafes (capacity of 30 customers), barbershops with air-conditioner, entertainment and sports centers from 5:00 PM on March 26 until the provincial People’s Committee issues new direction.
