On weekends and holidays, inter-district movement in Punjab will be allowed only for essential work via e-passes. However, no pass will be required for a medical emergency. Tightening the lockdown restrictions, Punjab has made e-pass mandatory for marriage functions, restricting the number of guests to 50.

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh said standalone shops as well as shopping malls would remain shut on Sundays and open on Saturdays till 5 pm. Non-essential shops would open five days a week. These would be shut on Sundays and any other day in a week decided by district magistrates in consultation with market associations. Under the new guidelines, shops dealing with essential commodities/services would remain open till 7 pm throughout the week. Restaurants (for takeaway/home delivery) and liquor shops would be open till 8 pm on all days. Expressing concern over the spiralling Covid cases, the CM appealed to the people to adhere to physical distancing norms.
