Coronavirus: All shops shut in Thane till April 14
The order will be in force in the limits of civic bodies in the district
In a bid to implement social distancing norms strictly to combat the coronavirus outbreak, the Thane district administration on Friday decided to shut all vegetable markets and shops till April 14. The order was issued by Collector Rajesh Narvekar late evening, said officials.
"The decision seems drastic but was the only way to reduce crowding as all pleas to people to maintain social distancing were failing," an official said.
The order will be in force in the limits of civic bodies in the district, he added.
