The Uttar Pradesh government today decided to relax restrictions in districts that currently have less than 600 active Covid cases starting June 1.
Districts with bigger cities such as capital, Lucknow, Noida and Ghaziabad, where the active case count is higher, won’t see relaxations in the curbs for now.
According to a government notification, markets in districts that have less than 600 active cases can now open from 7 am to 7 pm on weekdays.
The weekend curfew, however, will continue to be in force and this closure will be used for sanitising market areas in both urban and rural areas.
The notification says that it is mandatory for shopowners, staff and customers to follow Covid protocols such as social distancing and wearing of masks and any violation will invite action.
