Vietnam tightens Covid-19 preventive measures for tranport services
All travelers by air, road, sea and trail across the country are required to wear face masks and have their body temperature checked.
The Ministry of Transport requested on the evening of July 26 transport service providers to strictly comply with Covid-19 prevention and control measures after the novel coronavirus reappeared in the community in central Vietnam.

All drivers and passengers are required to wear face masks at train and bus stations and on board.
Before boarding, passengers must make electronic medical declarations and have their body temperature checked and wash their hands with disinfectant, except passengers on taxis and buses.
Authorities recommended limited conversation, eating and drinking during the trip. Drivers are encouraged to leave windows open to allow natural ventilation.
During the trip, the passenger needs to contact attendants or health authorities via two hotlines 1900 3228 and 1900 9095 for instructions.
All such conditions were no longer required for passengers after the national social distancing campaign in late March was lifted. Only air passengers were required to wear face masks.
During the stay-at-home orders, transport service providers were asked to reduce trips and flights and limit the number of passengers on each trip.
