Funerals should take place with infection control practices strictly in place, the notice said, adding that procedures should be simplified and shortened.

The province has also requested local residents to minimize non-essential ceremonies or mass gatherings, while the provincial Department of Transport has halted all car and motorcycle driving tests until further notice.

In Ba Ria-Vung Tau, the provincial People’s Committee has temporarily closed Con Dao Island, a popular tourist attraction, to visitors starting March 24. Islanders are advised to avoid non-essential travel in and out of Con Dao while local authorities have requested all travellers to fill in health declaration forms.

People who fail to comply with the rules will be strictly punished.
