Announcing more relaxations in the lockdown and curfew imposed due to the Covid-19 situation, the administration has done away with weekend curfew on Saturdays.
Now, the curfew would be enforced only on Sundays. Earlier, the administration had imposed weekend curfew on Saturdays and Sundays.
With the new orders, the market places would now be able to operate even on Saturdays. The administration had earlier this week relaxed the daily restrictions by an hour as shops were allowed to open till 6 pm instead of the earlier timings till 5 pm.
Deputy Commissioner Gurpreet Singh Khaira said private offices must try to run their businesses with 50 per cent of the staff strength so that physical distancing at workplace is insured.
He also advised residents to go for vaccination at the earliest. “It has been seen that the persons who had received the vaccine even if they were infected, had experienced only mild symptoms,” he said, adding that the vaccination was the only solution available against the infection and people should not hesitate.
The administration has also allowed opening of shopping malls in the district.
“The relaxations have been given in view of the problems being faced by residents and shopkeepers but it still is the responsibility of every person to exercise complete caution and follow all safety guidelines,” said the Deputy Commissioner (DC) Gurpreet Singh Khaira.
DC Khaira said the Covid situation in the district is normalising slowly as the number of cases and deaths due to Covid-19 were decreasing. “But we must understand that lowering the guard at this stage may result in worsening the situation,” he said.
