The Union government on Saturday said that hair salons and barber shops can't be opened for now. "They render services. Our Saturday order is applicable only to shops that deal in the sale of items. Only neighbourhood shops can be opened. There is no order to open barber shops and hair salons. There is no order to open liquor shops too," Joint Secretary of Home Affairs Punya Salila Srivastava today said.

She added that there is no order to open restaurants.
