Particularly, visitors from other localities are required to complete medical quarantine as required.

The locality is applying a 50% discount on entry fees to relic sites in the UNESCO-recognised Complex of Hue Monuments.

The local tourism sector recently has also actively promoted the locality’s image through publishing photos and videos of attractive tourist destinations on social networks, with the aim of further attracting holiday-makers to the locality after the COVID-19 pandemic is under control.

According to the provincial Department of Tourism, the locality is basically controlling well the pandemic. In the last three days, the locality has not recorded any new cases of COVID-19

As of September 29, as many as 124,378 people in Thua Thien Hue have received at least one shot of vaccines against COVID-19, with 57,000 of them getting full two shots.
