The municipality also asked the sheesha cafes to follow health and safety guidelines at the staff accommodation and transportation facilities and ensure frequent cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces and common areas.

All the employees should present a Covid-19 negative test result before working at the facility. The cafes are also asked to keep a record of all the staff and visitors to enable contact tracing in future, if necessary.

Only disposable sheesha hoses will be allowed and sheeshas should be washed after every use.
