The ministry also said that grocery shops will be open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on May 30 and citizens will be allowed to go to the market closest to their place of residence.
Bakeries, sweet shops, pharmacies, hospitals and veterinary clinics will remain open throughout the weekend, the ministry circular said.
