To contain the spread of coronavirus, Metro was closed on March 22. However, in early September, the metro services were resumed with strict safety and social distancing measures. After 169 days, the metro services were resumed but all the passengers must follow the guidelines about Covid 19.  If metro passengers will violate these guidelines then surely they will be fined for the same.
