COVID-19: NCOC relaxes restrictions on businesses

Previously, due to the third-wave of coronavirus, the government closed all businesses for two days. But now as things have eased, the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) has decided to keep businesses off for only one day instead of two. 

The decision to choose a day has not been taken as of yet and will be decided by the provincial units themselves. 

Federal Minister for Planning Asad Umar chaired the meeting and the decision was taken in his presence. It was declared that vaccination was to be made compulsory for all government and private employees. All private employees must be vaccinated by the 30th of June, 2021 said the NCOC.

Attendance to be increased from 50% to 100% in all offices, decided the NCOC. In-door gyms will be opened as well, but all members have to be vaccinated. 

Walk-in vaccination for the people who are 18+ will start from the 11 of June, 2021.
