Weekly bazaars allowed in Delhi with COVID-19 precautions


The Delhi Chief Minister's Office on Thursday informed that the state government has allowed weekly bazaars to function on a trial basis for a week while maintaining social distancing and all necessary precautionary measures in view of COVID-19.


According to the report, the government has also allowed street hawkers to function in the national capital 10 am to 8 pm on a trial basis for a week.

"It was decided that the street hawkers will be permitted to function in the future without any limitations on operating hours", CMO said.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took several steps to open up Delhi's economy under the Unlock-3 guidelines issued by the Central Government.

Earlier this week, CM Kejriwal had launched a portal for better coordination between job seekers and employers, permitted street hawkers to start operating on a trial basis for a week and de-linked hotels from Covid hospitals so that they could start functioning normally. 

Delhi recorded 1,093 fresh coronavirus cases on Thursday, taking the tally to over 1.34 lakh, while the death toll climbed to 3,936. The number of active cases in the city on Thursday was 10,743, down from 10,770 the previous day.
