Further, the restaurants will be permitted to function with 50% of the total seating capacity and the street food joints can also be opened.
COVID helpdesks mandatory at restaurants and other frequented spots
As of now, the hotels and restaurants were not allowed to host visitors and only delivery services were permitted. Now, the policy is being tweaked to allow guests up to 50% capacity. Additionally, the citizens would be able to relish their favorite meals from the street food joints after a long time, with the resumption of their services.
Though the state administration is planning to relax a number of restraints, the officials have been asked to make sure that COVID protocol is strictly adhered to. As per reports, the instructions call for setting up COVID helpdesks at restaurants and other frequented spots. At this spot, the name, phone number and other details of the visitors will be recorded. Besides, masking and social distancing protocol have to be strictly followed by all.
