On Thursday, the provincial government announced that dine-in service at F&B establishments will be resumed across Guangdong, with city districts classified Level I to IV for dining operation capacity depending on the severity of the coronavirus outbreak in the area.

The directive stipulates that restaurants in a Level IV area can resume full dine-in service, those in Level III areas can resume dine-in service at a limited capacity in the main dining area, while restaurants in Level II areas can only offer dine-in service in private rooms. Guangzhou Daily reports that the categories apply to the whole province of Guangdong, with different categories assigned to areas based on the number of newly confirmed coronavirus cases. 

In recent days, both Shenzhen and Guangzhou have reported no new cases, and the rate of newly confirmed cases in Guangdong has dropped off significantly.

Restaurants will be expected to meet a number of requirements regarding staff management, food procurement, sanitary measures and more. Meanwhile, diners will need to provide their name and contact information upon entering restaurants, according to Guangzhou Daily.

Below is a breakdown of restaurant dine-in service capacity for each district in Guangzhou and Shenzhen:


Level IV – Dine-in service resumes entirely


Level III – Dine-in service resumes in limited capacity in main dining area


Level II – Dine-in service only offered in private rooms



Level IV – Dine-in service resumes entirely

Dapeng New District

Level III – Dine-in service resumes in limited capacity in main dining area


Level II – Dine-in service only offered in private rooms


There are currently no districts in either city classified in a Level I category. Each districts’ level classification is subject to change.

We do advise you call ahead before visiting your favorite restaurant, as some may still be closed during this period.
