The Health Ministry on June 4 issued a list of standard operating procedures (SOPs) for malls, restaurants, hotels and places of religious worship under its phased unlock plan.
The notice laid down mandatory guidelines that all such establishments will have to follow to operate, only if they are located in a containment zone.
The Centre has finally allowed restaurants to open from June 8, which is among the sectors worst-hit by the coronavirus-induced lockdown. However, a luncheon or dining-in will not feel the same, at least not now.
Who will be allowed inside a restaurant?
