In view of the spurt in Covid cases, Mohali will observe a complete lockdown on Wednesday to restrict large gatherings on the occasion of Ram Navami. The lockdown will not affect the movement of vehicles on highways.

Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan said Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh decided this during a high-level Covid review meeting today. He added that lockdown had been announced for Sunday as well.

Dayalan said in addition, stricter restrictions, including extension of night curfew timings (now 8 pm to 5 am), closure of bars, cinema halls, gyms, spas, coaching centres, sports complexes and opening of restaurants and hotels only for takeaway and home delivery, would begin tomorrow.

The DC said the new restrictions, which also included closure of all malls, shops and markets on Sunday, coupled with the ones imposed earlier, would remain in effect till April 30. He directed the Police Department to strictly enforce the restrictions, taking support of civil society organisations where needed. All weekly markets had also been ordered to shut, he added.
