Delivery platform Now is resuming delivery of groceries and other essential goods in five Hanoi districts starting Wednesday.

The firm announced the resumption of NowFresh and NowShip in the districts of Cau Giay, Dong Da, Hai Ba Trung, Ba Dinh and Thanh Xuan under strict supervision following advice from the municipal Department of Transport and the Department of Information and Communication.

NowFood, the food delivery service that accounts for majority of its users, remains suspended.

Only drivers approved by the Hanoi Department of Transport are allowed to deliver.

All the drivers will complete daily health declarations and temperature checks before beginning to work and follow Covid-19 safety measures including wearing masks, keeping distance, avoiding crowds and disinfecting delivery packages regularly.

Now had temporarily suspended all of its services from July 28, following Grab, Gojek and Be. Among these platforms, it is the first to announce resumption of operations in Hanoi.

Hanoi is implementing a 15-day social distancing period starting July 24. The city has recorded 1,668 cases since the fourth wave began late April.
