At the entrance to the park, the authorities have posted warning signs about the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as recommending to wear masks and sanctions according to regulations. At this park, the government also arranges antibacterial hand washing and there are quite a few police and people on duty to remind everyone to wear masks.

Vung Tau’s cafes and dining spots are also quite crowded. The coastal road from Front Beach to Bai Sau is quite long. Tourist attractions such as the statue of Christ, the Hill of Pigs have many young people come to “check in” and enjoy the scenery. 

On the morning of February 16, the tide was low, so the road to Hon Ba Temple emerged, creating conditions for many people to come here to worship and admire.

During Tet this year, every day this coastal city only “lai rai” welcomes a few tens of thousands of people, of which on February 16, is expected to be the largest with only about 40,000 visitors. To ensure COVID-19 epidemic prevention, the committee and other forces of the city sent speakers to walk along the beach to urge people to wear masks, to keep distance.

As of February 16, in Ba Ria – Vung Tau there was no case of COVID-19 infection in the community.
