The Punjab government has resumed the Metro Bus service and operations of other inter-city buses after almost five months of suspension.

Their operations were suspended on March 23 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The bus crews have been ordered to ensure social distancing between passengers during journeys.

Passengers without face masks will not be allowed to board buses and all passengers must remain seated throughout their journeys.

Pakistan lifted its lockdown on August 10 and has now resumed almost all businesses provided they follow SOPs.

The National Command and Control Centre had proposed the reopening businesses citing a decrease in infections.

Pakistan’s medical community hasn’t figured out how or why the spread of the virus has slowed, but agree that the situation is under control and major medical facilities have little to no coronavirus patients.

Schools and other educational institutions will reopen from September 15. The government has also granted permission for non-contact sport events, but without any audience. Wedding halls are likely to be reopened from September 15.

All air, train and road transport is being resumed. There will no longer be any restrictions on the number of trains and planes operating. The restriction on distance between passengers during travel, however, will be maintained at least until the end of September.
