Chandigarh, June 6

The Punjab Government has allowed the opening of malls from June 8, subject to the visitors having COVA app on their cellphones.

The entry to the malls will be on the basis of tokens so as to regulate the number of visitors. It will also be ensured that the number of visitors in any shop does not exceed 50 per cent of the maximum permissible gathering. The maximum capacity for each shop in a mall will be fixed on the basis of maintenance of six-foot distance (i.e. around 100 square feet area for every person entering the shop).

Mall operators will also have to ensure adequate visiting time for every individual or group of visitors.

As regards restaurants, only the takeaway and home delivery options will be allowed till 8pm. There will be no dine-in facility till further orders. The restaurants in hotels will remain closed and the guests will be served food in their rooms only.

The government will review the situation on June 15. Night curfew will be strictly enforced and the movement of individuals allowed only between 5 am and 9 pm. Air/train tickets will serve as curfew passes for one-time movement of these guests to and from the hotel during curfew hours.

The maximum number of persons present inside any place of worship should not exceed 20 and the devotees will have to observe physical distancing norms. — TNS
