The northern province of Quang Ninh, once a Covid-19 hotspot, has decided to reopen movie theaters, bars, discos, video game, internet and karaoke parlors starting Thursday.

Provincial authorities have authorized the reopening of many non-essential businesses on the condition that they strictly maintain anti-epidemic measures. The decision takes effect throughout the province, except in Dong Trieu Town, which was hit hardest by infections in the province.

Tourism activities in Quang Ninh, home to the famous Ha Long Bay, also resume Thursday welcoming all tourists except those from locked down areas.

Intercity buses are allowed to operate, except in routes to and from its neighboring Hai Duong Province, the epicenter of the recent outbreak. Forces will continue to collect medical declarations from people entering Quang Ninh.

Quang Ninh is encouraging residents to continue registering for Covid-19 testing.

The province has recorded 61 cases of Covid-19 since January 28, when it recorded one of the first cases in the country's latest outbreak after two clean months. Lockdowns imposed on 14 communes and wards have been lifted.

Quang Ninh has gone 29 days without any community transmission of the novel coronavirus.
