No entry into Shaheed Minar without masks

This year, Amar Ekushey and International Mother Language Day will be celebrated on a limited scale, and people without face masks will be barred from entering Central Shaheed Minar in the capital.

Besides, no more than five people from an organisation and two visitors at a time will be allowed to pay homage to the language martyrs on the day.

Dhaka University (DU) authorities also decided that there will be no arrangement for gathering and reception at the university's central playground. 

DU Vice Chancellor Akhtaruzzaman yesterday visited Shaheed Minar and urged people to maintain health guidelines.

"To reduce health risks, there will be marks after every three feet on the street. Hand sanitiser will be available at every point," the VC said.

The authorities have also finalised a route map for going to the Central Shaheed Minar.

The new map will be effective from 8pm today, they added.
