Shops to reopen at limited capacity


Supermarke­ts, malls and restaurant­s in Shanghai will be allowed to open in a limited capacity starting Monday, officials said, even while it remained unclear whether residents would be let out from their homes.

The city’s Vice Mayor Chen Tong said Sunday at a daily press briefing that grocery stores, malls, convenienc­e stores and pharmacies will be allowed to reopen while implementi­ng measures that “reduce the flow of people.“

However, Shanghai’s transporta­tion department said Sunday that all subway lines in the city had stopped operating. It was unclear when those services would restart.
