Reopening on April 30 which is the Reunification Day Holiday, the beach has seen a huge number of visitors.



Although local authorities have warned about possible virus threats and asked visitors to follow some prevention measures including keeping a 1-metre distance from one another, and avoiding gatherings of over 20 people, no one seems to care.



Local hotels have been asked to refuse tourists who come from virus-hit areas.

 



The beach was jammed with tourists, especially young people.



To ensure Covid-19 prevention, Thanh Hoa Province has announced the suspension of the Sam Son Beach 2020 Festival.
