From now on, government offices will be allowed to resume operations as normal, but stay at home-work is strongly suggested where possible.

Official training courses, meetings, and seminars are allowed to take place, but celebratory parties remain cancelled. 

Indoor and outdoor sports, restaurants, retail outlets, beauty salons, supermarkets and massage and spa providers will also be allowed to reopen.

However, entertainment venues, cinemas, karaoke bars, night markets, casinos, gaming shops and sports competitions involving a large number of people who cannot remain one meter apart will be suspended until June 1.
