New Delhi: After being shut for over two months, barbershops and salons will reopen in Delhi, but spas will remain closed, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday while announcing the next-phase of relaxations.
Addressing an online media briefing, Kejriwal said there will also be no restrictions on the number of persons travelling in four wheelers, two wheelers, auto-rickshaws, e-rickshaws and other vehicles in the city.
"As per the new rules of the Delhi government, there will be no restrictions on vehicles such as autos, e-rickshaws, rural services for allowing only one passenger. There will also be no restriction on cars and two-wheelers etc. But I request you to fully follow the social distancing norms at the time of this corona disaster and be safe," Gahlot tweeted in Hindi.
The announcements came as the nation exits the COVID-19 lockdown in a phased manner. The chief minister said that the Delhi government will implement all the relaxations permitted by the Centre.
He said that until now, shops in markets were being allowed to open on odd-even basis, adding that there are no such restrictions mentioned by the Centre in its latest guidelines.
Now, all shops in the city will be permitted to function, Kejriwal said. The chief minister said that there will also be no restrictions on the functioning of industries in the national capital.
