The ‘No mask, no service’ policy will be strictly enforced after the ongoing lockdown is relaxed, says the State Minister for Public Administration. But there has not been any final decision yet and it is not clear right now to which extent the restrictions will be slackened.

The government will start relaxing the strict restrictions of the ongoing lockdown from Apr 29, State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain has said.

In addition to gradually resuming all economic activities in compliance with the health guidelines, public transport services along with public and private offices will open on a limited scale. A notice will be issued with the relevant guidelines in this regard, local media reported citing Farhad.

The government will continue to enforce the ‘No mask, no service’ policy, according to Farhad.

“Even if the restrictions are relaxed, we’ll have to properly maintain health guidelines and the government will ensure strict implementation of ‘no mask, no service’ policy”.

On when public transport services will resume, the state minister said a decision on the matter will be taken on Apr 28.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet Division issued a notice, allowing malls and stores to reopen in adherence with health rules on Sunday, with shopping hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.

Bangladesh is currently battling a second wave of the coronavirus.
