Traders, market associations, shopkeepers, hawkers, vendors, and workers have all been instructed to get vaccinated, with those who are not vaccinated not being allowed in marketplaces.

To stop the virus from spreading, Delhi has enacted a slew of restrictions, including night curfews and weekend curfews. Daily infections began to spike in the closing days of December last year, mostly due to the Omicron variant, after remaining low for several months. This prompted authorities to tighten restrictions.
