The social distancing of two metres must be followed between the tables and only four people should be allowed in each table. No gatherings or parties will be permitted.

Further, temperature checks are mandatory for all the visitors and those with a temperature above 37.5 degree Celsius are to be prohibited from entering the premises, the circular said.
