Sep 15, 2021 16:30 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The West Bengal government on Wednesday extended Covid-related restrictions in the state, till September 30, as per an official notification. The restrictions, which were first imposed on May 16 and extended at regular intervals, were set to expire on Wednesday.

The notification mandates ‘wearing of masks, maintaining physical distancing, along with health and hygiene protocols at all times’. The West Bengal government has allowed offices, both government and private, to function with half the manpower, as per the order.

The notification further added that ‘all outdoor activities including movement of people and vehicles shall be strictly prohibited between 11 pm to 5 am except for health services, law and order, essential commodities and other emergency services.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government has allowed further unlocking as Covid situation improves. Public fairs and exhibitions will be permitted from September 16, under a phased reopening of economic activities, which interrupted by the lockdown during the second wave of Covid-19.

Banquet halls will be allowed to hold such exhibitions and fairs. Schools, however, will be closed for students up to Class 8, according to the govt order.
