They also directed that restaurants can operate sit-down while observing appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols.

They also directed all hotels in the country to resume normal services.

They also ordered all food operators and restaurants to do only delivery and takeouts.

Meanwhile, they also maintained that night clubs remain closed for the time been and said this directive supersedes the one released by GTA.
