Maharashtra has further eased unlock guidelines and allowed shopping malls to remain open till 10 PM every day under specified conditions and children are also permitted there with age proof since their vaccination has not started.
“Since vaccination for the population under 18 has not yet started to enter shopping malls all children below 18 years of years need to show a document for their age proof like Aadhaar Card, PAN card issued by the income tax department, valid school or college identity cards with mention of date of birth at the entry point of mall,” according to an order issued by chief secretary Sitaram Kunte on Monday.
All shopping malls in the state are allowed to open till 10 PM on all days provided all customers/citizens entering the mall and all employees including managers and housekeeping staff, must have a final Covid vaccination certificate with photo entry proof at the entry point of the mall. The order reiterates the mandatory gap of 14 days after taking second jab to allow staff and the patrons to allow inside malls.
Earlier on Monday, under modified Break the Chain guidelines, BMC allowed all beaches, sea fronts, public gardens, and parks to remain open from 6 AM to 10 PM daily.
BMC commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal on August 13 had said that restaurant staff must have taken the first dose of vaccine before reporting to work and no employee must be ‘zero vaccinated’. This relaxation came after the guidelines earlier allowed only fully vaccinated employees to work at restaurants.
All guidelines are effective till further orders.
