Chandigarh: To contain the spread of Covid-19, the Haryana government on Friday ordered that malls and shops in the market places of urban areas will remain closed on Monday and Tuesday instead of the weekend.
The new order, however, does not apply to shops dealing with essential goods and services.
However, public and private offices will remain open on Monday and Tuesday.
The revised instructions come a week after the government had ordered offices and shops to remain closed on the weekend in the state.
“To contain further spread of Covid-19 in Haryana, shopping malls and shops, except those dealing with essential goods and services shall remain closed on Monday and Tuesday in the market places of urban areas of the state. Accordingly, there is no bar on opening of shops and shopping malls on Saturday and Sunday in these areas. These orders will be applicable till further orders,” a government order said.
