The government today requested the people to make use of time they spend at home to clean the environment, cultivate some frequently-used crops and pay special attention to the children and the elders.
In a statement, the President's Media Division advised the public to refrain from gathering at fuel stations, liquor shops, markets and restaurants and going on trips once the curfew is lifted.
"Go to the market alone when the curfew is lifted and follow medical advices," it said.
The PMD further said work from home system ensures self-quarantine and also limits the gathering in public transport and bus and railway stations.
"This step will be instrumental in ensuring the well-being of everyone. Functioning of essential services, electricity, telephone, fuel, banking, transportation of commodities, and their distribution will continue without any hindrance. This will also be helpful to health officials engaged in curbing and preventing COVID-19, Police and Security Forces, officials delivering essential services and the media to carry out their duties," it said.
