The elderlies and children will not be allowed to enter the cattle market ahead of Eid-ul Azha this year, according to guidelines provided by the government.
The Press Information Department (PID) issued an official notice on Wednesday regarding government guidelines to contain the spread of coronavirus in cattle markets.
According to these guidelines, market management should restrict or regulate the entrance of elderly people and children as they are more vulnerable to contagious disease.
The markets should have separate entry and exit points alongside hand washing facilities, hand sanitisers and temperature measuring devices.
According to the notice, the markets cannot be set up on main roads or in places that create traffic congestion.
Mobile courts will take necessary legal actions against those not following the directives, warned the notice.
The notice urged to promote trading of sacrificial animals from the 241 digitals cattle markets (digital haats) set up across the nation.
