HCMC supermarket, convenience store employees can go out at night

Chairman of the municipal People's Committee Nguyen Thanh Phong announced the decision following a proposal by the Department of Industry and Trade to let units have more opportunities to prepare goods and disinfect business places.

The department has been requested to cooperate with relevant authorities to list supermarket and convenience store employees and update the data onto a database. Per the provided info, directors of supermarkets and convenience stores would give their employees approval documents so they could access the streets from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next day.

Ho Chi Minh City has undergone a social distancing order since July 9. Starting July 26, people must stay home from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next day, except for certain cases like medical emergencies and pandemic control.

On August 3, the city has also allowed certain postal services to let their vehicles access the streets from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next day so as to not disrupt public and essential services.

The southern city has recorded 124,153 local Covid-19 cases since the fourth coronavirus wave hit Vietnam in late April, having the highest number of infections out of all localities.
