Delhi has eased restrictions on shops and markets and allowed salons to open, but at the same time put stringent curbs on interstate travel for a week while deciding against opening malls and places of worship, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday, aiming to strike a cautious balance and protect the city's health care resources on the day coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases in the Capital crossed the 20,000-mark.

Two days after the central government allowed the opening of religious places, malls and hotels and dine-in restaurants from June 8, the Delhi government's guidelines, for now, did not approve any of these activities that have been prohibited in the city-state since March 25, the day a nationwide lockdown was first imposed to stop the spread of Covid-19.

According to a senior government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, an assessment of the ground situation will be conducted on June 7 before taking a call on possible relaxations in line with the central guidelines.
