However, medical stores, clinics, hospitals, petrol stations, bakeries and milk shops have been exempted. The restrictions will remain in place until April 11.

Outdoor dining

Outdoor dining at restaurants will be allowed until 10pm. After that, only takeaways and deliveries will be permitted.

Ban on weddings

The government has banned all indoor and outdoor weddings from April 6.

Workplace staff to be reduced to 50%

All public and private sector organisations will be allowed to call 50% staff to workplace, according to the new directives.

Public transport

Intercity transport services can accommodate only 50% passengers with strict compliance of virus SOPs.

The coronavirus situation in Sindh will be reviewed at the National Command and Operation Centre meeting on April 7, according to the provincial government.
