Authorities in Thua Thien-Hue Province, home to popular tourist town Hue, allowed tourist destinations and historical relics to resume operation from Tuesday after over a month of closure.

Tourist attractions and historical sites are allowed to only organize outdoor activities. Provincial authorities are yet to allow visitors from other localities amid the complicated development of the pandemic.

Restaurants, street eateries and coffee shops are allowed to serve customers, but not exceed half their covers. People could participate in indoor and outdoor sports activities but must ensure pandemic prevention measures.

Residents and businesses across the province must abide by coronavirus control measures like wearing masks, keeping a safe distance and scanning QR codes for health declarations.

Festivals, cultural and arts performances are still banned while bars, karaoke parlors, dance clubs, pubs and beer clubs remain closed until further notice.

Hue, capital of Thua Thien-Hue Province, famous for its Imperial Citadel and royal tombs, shut down tourist attractions and historical sites on Aug. 12 after detecting new Covid clusters.

So far, the pandemic situation in the province has basically been brought under control.

In the ongoing fourth Covid wave that hit April 27, Thua Thien-Hue has reported 821 infections, out of the nation's over 761,000 cases.
