> Public transportation to 50 per cent

> Cinemas, entertainment events and venues to 50 per cent

> Fitness centres and gyms to 50 per cent

‏The decision also moves to limit the number of individuals allowed at family and social gatherings (such as weddings) to a maximum of 10 people, while funerals are allowed to have a maximum of 20 attendees.

All members of the public must maintain a physical distance of 2 metres in public.

Restaurants and cafés are also required to maintain a 2-metre distance between tables, where no more than four people are allowed to sit together, unless they belong to the same family.
