In the remaining districts, namely Gurugram, Faridabad, Nuh, Sonipat, Panipat, Palwal, and Panchkula, the strategy would be made as per the block and town levels. The Chief Minister also said that no economic activity would be allowed in the containment zones.

CM Khattar said that those industrial units that follow social distancing guidelines and operate with less than 50 per cent labour strength, can extend their working hours from 8 to 12 hours. HE also added that such industrial units should pay double salary to their workers for working overtime as per section 59 of the Factories Act, 1948.
