Besides, the entry to the malls will be on the basis of token to ensure that the strength of the visitors in the mall and each shop located within does not exceed 50 per cent of the visitor capacity.

In detailed guidelines issued for opening of malls, restaurants and religious places from June 8, the state’s Home Department on Saturday said the mall operators would have to ensure the time duration for each group of visitors.

The maximum capacity of the people allowed in each shop in the mall would be fixed on the basis of maintenance of 6-ft distance, ie, an area of approximately 10×10 for each person entering the shop. 

For restaurant, only takeaway and home delivery has been allowed till 8 pm, as of now. There would be no dine-in facility till further orders.

The government would review the situation on June 15. The hotel restaurants will remain closed and food will be served in the rooms for hotel guests.

The night curfew will be strictly enforced and movement of individuals will be permissible only from 5 am to 9 pm, based on their schedule of travel by flight/train. The air/train ticket would serve as a curfew pass for one-time movement of these guests to and from the hotel during the curfew hours. 

For religious places, the maximum number of persons at the time of worship will not exceed 20 with due distancing; the worship time should be staggered in smaller groups.
