The Union home ministry on Wednesday issued an order to extend guidelines for surveillance, containment and caution against Covid-19 from February 1 to 28. The home ministry allowed swimming pools for everyone and higher seating in cinema halls. It further said that revised SOPs will soon be issued by ministry of information and broadcasting. Cinema halls and theatres were earlier allowed to operate with 50 per cent seating capacity. The home ministry guidelines say that persons above 65 years of age, persons with co-morbidities, pregnant women and children below the age of 10 years are advised to take necessary precautions.
