The government has allowed reopening of shops and shopping malls for five days from Friday (April 9-13) subject to maintaining health guidelines.
The Cabinet Division issued a circular in this regard on Thursday.
As per the circular, owners will be allowed to keep their shops and shopping malls open from 9 am to 3 pm in compliance with the health guidelines.
It said legal action will be taken if health protocols are not maintained properly.
Shops and shopping malls in the country remained shut since April 5 due to a weeklong lockdown enforced by the government to fight the second wave of Covid-19.
