Certain areas in Hanoi's Hoan Kiem and Tay Ho districts will allow in-person dining after seeing their Covid risk levels drop, with Hai Ba Trung expected to follow.

Hoan Kiem authorities Saturday stated while the district as a whole remains at high coronavirus risk, five of its wards, Phan Chu Trinh, Tran Hung Dao, Hang Trong, Trang Tien and Hang Bac, saw their coronavirus risk levels drop to medium. This means these wards can reopen food and beverage establishments and allow in-person dining once more starting Monday noon.

In-house sports and physical exercises are also allowed to resume, albeit at limited capacity.

Tay Ho District also saw its coronavirus risk level drop to medium, allowing it to resume in-person dining starting Saturday noon. Three of its wards, Buoi, Xuan La and Yen Phu, are still at high coronavirus risk however, meaning they cannot reopen in-person dining just yet.

Hai Ba Trung District also saw its coronavirus risk level drop to medium Friday night, but district authorities have yet to announce whether it would relax any restrictions.

One Hanoi district, Cau Giay, saw its coronavirus risk level increase to high Friday. The district has announced that in-person dining will be suspended starting 8 a.m. Monday, along with wet markets and the likes.

Hanoi as a whole is still at medium coronavirus risk. Twenty of its districts are at medium coronavirus risk and eight, at high risk.
