The State Government has now allowed the reopening and functioning of various establishments in order to provide impetus to the economy. However, in order to prevent the transmission of the COVID 19 virus, restrictions like regulating of time, scrupulous adherence to COVID Appropriate Behaviour, requirements of service providers as well as visitors to be fully vaccinated, restrictions on occupancy etc. have been imposed through the relevant provisions of the above mentioned Acts upon various establishments depending upon the nature of the same.
In the wake of the upcoming festival season, it is now felt that restrictions on time of functioning for various establishment like shops, restaurants, hotels, etc. will lead to more crowding in the shorter duration in which they are currently allowed to function.
Hence, In exercise of the powers conferred under the Disaster Management Act. 2005. the undersigned in the capacity of the Chairperson of the State Executive Committee of the State Disaster Management Authority hereby declares that, with immediate effect, all other restrictions as mentioned earlier remaining unchanged. all restaurants and eateries may be allowed to function till midnight i.e till 12 AM and all other establishments that have been allowed to function by the Government may be allowed to function till 11 PM. Local DDMA may restrict these timings further if so deemed fit due to any local requirements but shall not relax it further without consent of SDMA.
