Barbers and hairdressers are also permitted to reopen but with a maximum capacity of 50% while food shops can only offer takeaway.

Starting from October 1, barriers will be removed and local citizens can travel within the city without travel permits but are required to use QR codes on mobile apps with their vaccination history.
