Sindh govt once again orders early market closure

KARACHI: The Sindh government has once again ordered all markets to close at 9 PM as the number of coronavirus cases gradually spike across the country.
A notification has been issued in this regard directing all markets to close down at 9 PM. Last month, the provincial government ended all lockdown restrictions and allow markets to reopen at normal business hours.
According to the notification, the work days and business timings will be six days a week with one day off either on Friday and Sunday as applicable to the area. Pharmacies and essential services have been exempted.
Markets will remain open from 6:00 AM to 8 PM except for Saturday when businesses may remain open till 9 PM.
Restaurants and cafes will remain open all days of the week with restricted dine-in, take away and home delivery services as per SOPs. The order will remain valid until 15th October.
National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) on Friday said that 752 new cases of coronavirus have surfaced in the country, while nine deaths have also been reported from the virus during this period.
The government had opened educational institutes including colleges and universities on 15th September. However, there has been a spike in the number of cases among students, teachers and staff.
At least 13 educational institutions across Pakistan have been closed in the last 24 hours due to non-compliance with health guidelines or standard operating procedures (SOPs). A day earlier, 22 educational institutes were closed for flouting safety precautions.
