Eateries and restaurants will be open between 9am and 3pm but only for take-out and delivery services. In-dining services are not allowed. All food handlers and staff must go through exhaustive health checks, temperature checks and a high level of hygiene must be maintained.

On Easing The Lockdown, markets and stores will be allowed to operate from 9am to 3pm on selected days which will be communicated.
