Haryana Home and Health minister Anil Vij on Friday said all offices and shops, except those providing essential services, will remain closed on every Saturday and Sunday in the wake of increase in COVID-19 cases in the state.

“All offices and shops except essential will remain closed in Haryana on every Saturday and Sunday due to #COVID-19,” Vij said in a tweet.

He later said that the decision was taken as cases during past few days have registered a sudden increase.

“We have taken this decision as there has been a sudden increase in cases,” Vij said.
