This order will be also applied for travelers coming back from Hai Duong Province, and Yen My and Khoai Chau districts in the northern province of Hung Yen.
The city’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also informed that arrivals returning from Quang Ninh Province will need to quarantine at home for 14 days because this locality has eased social distancing measures.
