Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has clarified that marriage halls, shopping malls, hotels, and restaurants in the province will remain closed even as the federal government moves towards lifting lockdown measures.

“Malls, marriage halls will remain closed, there will be no congregations or sports events either,” he said, adding further that these things have been clearly defined in the guidelines issued by the Centre.

“These guidelines will remain applicable till May 31. This is what the federal government has outlined and we are ready to comply with these directives,” he said.

CM Sindh has appealed to citizens to stay at home as much as possible even as the province moves towards easing lockdown measures that have been imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

While speaking at a press conference in Karachi, he said: “If you are allowed to leave your homes, according to the directives issued by the government, then make sure to follow standard operating procedures. Wear a mask.”

He also urged citizens to take extra care when they are around the elderly, who are more susceptible to respiratory illness.
