Production has been restored, but the Management Board of Bac Giang Province’s Industrial Parks asked these firms to strictly and fully comply with regulations of competent authorities on epidemic prevention and control, such as meeting distance requirements, having dormitories for workers, workers tested negative for covid-19 twice, with the latest test being one day before returning to the factory.

The companies divided workers into groups of 10-16 people per group, called "Worker's team against Covid-19". These groups will be transported together from their residence to the workplace and vice versa, have their own accommodation, eat meals in shifts, etc. to limit contact with others. This will enable easy zoning and tracing of Covid-19 cases.
