The Bac Lieu Provincial People's Committee requested heads of departments, departments and agencies to raise vigilance against the danger of the pandemic, to drastically and synchronously implement the proposed preventive measures.

It has also directed the strict implementation of preventive measures, especially the Ministry of Health’s 5K message: khau trang (facemask), khu khuan (disinfection), khoang cach (distance), khong tu tap (no gathering) and khai bao y te (health declaration), with strict punishment over not wearing face masks at public places, healthcare stations, markets, supermarkets and coach stations.

In addition, the province continues to limit unnecessary events and activities gathering people.
