As per orders, government offices in the city will have to implement work from home for employees and private offices will operate at 50 percent capacity on weekends. The decision came after a meeting of the DDMA, which was chaired by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal. The issue of imposing more restrictions in Delhi was discussed in the meeting as the city has been witnessing a massive surge in Covid-19 infections from the past few days.

Delhi reported 4,099 new Covid-19 cases while the positivity rate jumped to 6.46 percent, the city government's health bulletin showed on Monday.
