After remaining closed for around two months amid the nation's latest COVID-19 outbreak, Hanoi's bars, karaoke parlors and dance clubs can reopen on March 23.
Chu Xuan Dung, Deputy Chairman of the municipal People's Committee, said all the establishments and local administrations will have to adopt pandemic prevention measures.
People attending these venues will be required to make medical declarations via QR Code and the Blue Zone application in an effort to ensure epidemic preventive measures, he said.
Localities must move to intensify inspection measures and punish any violations which are detected, he noted.

He also revealed that the capital has agreed to organise events which will involve large gatherings of people, although any epidemic preventive measures must be in accordance with the guidance promoted by the Ministry of Health.
He also requested that directors of relevant units at a grassroots level continue implementing the dual goal of epidemic prevention and economic recovery so as to get the local economy back on track, the VOV reported.
