Shopping malls in these two Haryana districts were not allowed to re-open during Unlock 1.0 because of rising Covid-19 cases
Shopping malls re-opened in Haryana's Gurugram and Faridabad districts today while adhering to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs) issued by the Central government.
The shop owners were seen maintaining social distancing protocols amid the novel coronavirus outbreak in the country. Thermal screening, use of hand sanitizers were strictly being followed in the malls.
A store manager at Crown Interiorz Mall, in Faridabad said "We are taking all precautions against COVID-19, including checking customer's temperature at the entrance and providing them hand sanitizers."
Similarly, RS Phogat, security officer of MGF Metropolitan mall in Gurugram said,"We're ensuring social distancing in the mall. Those above 65 years of age and below 10 years of age are not allowed".
Before the re-opening, Municipal Corporation Commissioner of Gurugram said officers will be appointed to look for violations and in any such case, the district administration will initiate the process to close that particular mall.
Shopping malls in these two Haryana districts weren't allowed to re-open during Unlock 1.0 because of rising Covid-19 cases.
Gurugram District Magistrate Amit Khatri on Friday said, "The country is heading toward unlocking and hence there is no reason to lock down Gurugram again. However, we have decided to tighten security in the containment zones. We will deploy security personnel at entry and exit gates in a bid to ban free movement of residents."
In view of fast rising Covid-19 cases, the Gurugram administration has identified eight containment zones in the district and will enforce a complete lockdown for two weeks.
