Delhi Police Commissioner SN Shrivastava held a meeting with all district Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCsP) and senior police officers regarding the preparations and plans following the announcement in relaxation of lockdown from Monday.
Earlier, Delhi was placed under strict Covid-related curbs on April 20 that has been extended on a week-by-week basis ever since.
“The CP also carve out a road map to deal with the emerging scenario that will witness a large number of people and vehicles coming out of homes, posing a challenge to enforcing Covid safety norms,” said Chinmoy Biswal, the Public Relation Officer (PRO) of Delhi Police.
During the meeting, Shrivasatva also directed the DCsP to devise non-coercive methods and take steps to ensure normalcy and ensure social distancing in markets, subzi mandis, localities through participation of MWAs, RWAs etc.
“The Traders Associations shall be responsible for ensuring Covid appropriate behaviour through their volunteers and ensure that the shopkeepers adhere to the guidelines while the shop owners should ensure Covid protocols at their spaces. Shops need to place sanitiser dispensers and maintain social distancing of customers,” said the CP.
Shrivastava further also directed that the weekly markets be held in open grounds where vendors on rehri and patri should place themselves in sufficient distance from each other.
