TAXILA: The district administration sealed four eateries in various parts of the city for violating Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs).

Assistant Commissioner Mian Mohammad Faheem along with officials of the municipal committee visited hotels, restaurants and food points located on GT Road in Taxila, Wah and sealed four eateries for violating government instructions.

Talking to press, Mr Faheem said that there were severe violations of SOPs, as there was no observance of social distancing and no masks were worn by staff, especially waiters.

“These eateries were allowed to operate, only to offer takeaway; especially truck drivers driving through GT Road, but they opened their restaurants for the general public in sheer violation of SOPs and staff members at these eateries were not abiding hygiene precautions. Fines have been imposed on the owners,” he added.
