Under the Distribution Trade sector, the SOP states that shopping malls are to be closed except for supermarkets, hypermarkets, department stores with food and beverage sections, stores providing essential needs, pharmacies, self-care, convenience stores, mini marts and restaurants for takeaway and home delivery.
The SOP also allows supermarkets, hypermarkets, pharmacies, self-care stores, convenience stores and mini marts and departmental stores to be opened “limited to food, beverages and essential needs sections only”, but does not go on to specify what may or may not fall under the “essential needs” category. headtopics.com
For online shopping, the SOPs had listed “e-commerce (all product categories)” as an essential service allowed to operate throughout the total lockdown, which suggests there is no limit to the type of items purchasable online.Other essential services under the Distribution trade sector allowed to operate from June 1 to June 14 include restaurants, laundry shops including self-service types, optical shops, hardware shops, vehicle workshops and services for vehicle maintenance and spare parts, stores selling pet food, and wholesale and distribution of all categories of essential products only.
The SOPs are intended to limit or reduce the movement of individuals, to help curb the spread of Covid-19 cases in the country.The same June 2 SOPs showed that the “negative list” or list of activities under the economy sector not allowed during the total lockdown as including spa, reflexology and massage centres, hair salons, beauty salons and pedicure and manicure services, cybercafes, photography activities, lotteries, casinos, factories and shops for “
