Mumbai: Delhi borders have been sealed for the next one week and that only essential services will be allowed amidst a surge in COVID-19 positive cases informed CM Arvind Kejriwal.
“Delhi’s borders will be sealed for next week. Essential services are exempted. We will make a decision again in one week to open borders after seeking suggestions from citizens,” said Kejriwal.
“Barbershops and salons will be opened in addition to whatever permission has been granted so far, but spas will remain closed. We were following odd-even rules for shops in markets but the central government has not stated any such rule, so all shops can open now,” he added.
“In autos, e-rickshaws and other vehicles, as per earlier orders, the number of passengers was fixed. But now we are removing the restrictions on the number of passengers traveling in autos, e-rickshaws, and other vehicles.” Kejriwal said.
“The Center has decided that from 9 am to 5 am no person will go out, except the people working in essential services are being implemented by the Delhi government. Till now it was directed that only two people can sit in a four-wheeler apart from the driver and nobody will ride on a scooter on the pillion seat but the Centre has dismissed this condition and even we are removing this restriction,” he added.
The Center had earlier directed that staggered time be implemented in industrial areas and even we followed it, but now that the Central Government has withdrawn that decision, we are doing the same. Kejriwal said that industries can now open in Delhi.
