HCMC – The HCMC government on August 9 gave the green light to employees of supermarkets and convenience stores in the city to travel on the streets between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. to prepare and arrange cargo and disinfect their business space.
The municipal Department of Industry and Trade was assigned to coordinate with the relevant agencies to confirm the list of assigned employees and integrate the list to the database of the department to serve the management and tracing work, the local media reported.
The city also asked the directors of supermarkets and convenience stores to issue employment certificates for these employees.
HCMC had asked stores and supermarkets to shut down and banned local residents from going out from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. since July 26 without a legitimate reason, except for some groups of people, such as frontline workers, emergency workers, journalists, sanitation workers, workers who fix electricity, water and other infrastructure problems, essential goods transport vehicle drivers and workers at gas stations at the city’s gateways, among others.
On August 3, the city added those providing postal services to the list.
