Gyms and yoga centres have been allowed to reopen in Delhi from Monday at 50 per cent capacity, an official government order said.
Banquet halls, marriage halls, and hotels have also been permitted to host weddings, but the number of guests has been capped at 50, the order said.
The national capital, which recorded 85 new infections in 24 hours – its lowest daily rise in Covid cases since May 1, 2020, has been easing pandemic restrictions over the last few days. Last week, Delhi allowed shops to remain open through the week and markets to open with partial workforce as daily cases showed a downward trend.
Bars were allowed to operate in the city from noon till 10 pm and timings of restaurants were extended by two hours from June 20. Salons were allowed to reopen in the national capital from June 14.
These fresh set of relaxations came with strong warning by doctors and public health experts about the risks of a rapid unlocking and disregard for Covid protocols.
