Odd-even for shops also to be taken up

Restrictions may also be imposed on visitors in government offices to check rush. Ban on cultural, social or religious gatherings will also be discussed.

The Administration has already shut Rock Garden, while Sukhna Lake has been closed for the public on weekends.

Night curfew has already been imposed in the city from 10 pm to 5 am. There is also a restriction on gatherings — 200 persons for outdoor events and 100 persons for indoor — in the UT. The authorities may also consider reducing this number further.
