The National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) on Friday lifted one-day lockdown restriction across the country, allowing businesses to operate 24/7.

The decisions were taken in NCOC meeting presided over by Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Initiatives Asad Umar.

During the meeting, the situation was reviewed in detail in proportion to the level of vaccination in the districts.

The forum lifted the mandatory one-day weekly closure across the country.
The forum while allowing up to 400 guests to attend the indoor wedding ceremonies, allowed only fully vaccinated people to visit cinemas and shrines.

The relaxation in the SOPs will continue from October 16 to 31, while the forum would review SOPs in its next meeting on October 28.

Earlier Friday, a team of the NCOC along with secretary Regional Transport Authority (RTA) Rawalpindi had distributed masks among drivers and passengers.

The team also impounded several vehicles and arrested transport owners for allowing non-vaccinated passengers to travel in their vehicles. Cases were also registered against the violators.

The team checked vaccination certificates of drivers and passengers at local vans, buses, passengers of Metro buses and Bykea’s drivers.
