Organizations will provide identity cards and necessary documents to their respective delivery personnel
Delivery of e-commerce products will face no restrictions from 6am to 12am in Dhaka city and other parts of the country amid the week-long lockdown enforced to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
The Ministry of Commerce on Tuesday sent a letter to all divisional commissioners, metropolitan police commissioners, deputy commissioners, and superintendents of police to take necessary action in line with this directive.
Vehicles engaged in transporting food and other essential commodities, including agricultural products, will be able to move round the clock on the streets.
The delivery organizations will provide identity cards and necessary documents to their respective delivery people and the vehicles involved in transporting the essential commodities.
Delivery personnel and vehicles will have to carry stickers or identity cards with the logo and serial number of e-Commerce Association of Bangladesh (e-CAB), the letter reads.
Restaurants connected with e-commerce organizations can remain open from 6am to 10pm by maintaining health guidelines.
Earlier, the government issued a notification announcing a lockdown from April 5 to April 11 as the coronavirus infection kept increasing at an alarming rate.
From Wednesday though, some restrictions were relaxed as public transport began operating from 6am to 6pm in all city corporation areas, including Dhaka.
