COVID-19 prevention work in these fields must be strictly conducted in line with guiding documents and instructions from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. 

Tour operators, accommodation establishments, tourism service providers, cultural, physical training, and sports establishments, and museums, tourism destination management boards, and organization committees of festivals are required to apply COVID-19 prevention regulations and measures in accordance with the guidance documents from the two ministries.

Accommodation establishments must register and declare daily any relevant information. Plans will be outlined to ensure the safety and security of tourists and people participating in cultural and sports activities and visitors to museums, cultural heritage sites, and festivals. 

COVID-19 prevention instructions will be also popularized on posters and leaflets and via loudspeakers at tourism sites, museums, cultural and historical relic sites, cultural and sports establishments, and festival venues.

In the event of a new pandemic outbreak or the risk of community infection, the organization of festivals will be suspended or adjusted in terms of scale, time, and form to ensure disease prevention regulations are met.

People are requested to wear a face mask when participating in tourism, cultural, and sports activities in public places, visiting museums, historical relics, landscapes, and festivals.

The inspection and examination of the implementation of COVID-19 pandemic prevention measures will be strengthened, while violations will be severely punished.
