“The lockdown that should have ended on Monday is now will be valid until June 7th. Manufacturing and construction businesses are allowed to resume operations. I hope that when the number of infections decreases further in the coming weeks, we will continue to unblock further. We want economic activity to return to a state that allows the economy to revive,” said Arvind Kejriwal on local TV channels.

Companies that resume business will have to strictly observe precautionary measures - Employees must wear masks and maintain social distancing. The authorities will carry out spot checks of reopening companies for compliance with infection safety standards.
