Weekend Lockdown To Continue In Madhya Pradesh Despite Unlocking: Shivraj Chouhan

Bhopal: 

Though the Madhya Pradesh government has approved a phase-wise unlocking of the “corona curfew” restrictions beginning June 1, the weekend lockdown will continue to be in force across the state, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Saturday.

There will be separate sets of unlocking guidelines for the places having the COVID-19 positivity rate above 5 per cent and below 5 per cent, Mr Chouhan told a meeting of the crisis management groups at the village, block, ward and district level in a televised address in the evening.

The weekend curfew from 10 PM on Saturdays to 6 AM on Mondays will continue irrespective of unlocking of coronavirus-induced curbs, he said.

“Based on these guidelines and local COVID-19 situation and circumstances, the crisis management committees at the district, ward, block and village levels will take decisions about unlocking theirrespective areas from June 1,” Mr Chouhan said.

The Chief Minister asked the crisis management committees to hold a meeting on Sunday to take a decision.

Mr Chouhan said cultural, political, social, sports, fairs and entertainment activities will not be allowed.

He said school, colleges, educational institutions, cinema halls, shopping malls, theatre, auditoriums and picnic spots will continue to remain closed.

Mr Chouhan also said that Morena district crisis management committee has already decided to continue the “corona curfew” given the spike in COVID-19 cases.

On Saturday, the state government came up with separate guidelines for villages falling under the green zone (zero active cases), ”yellow” zone (four or less than four active cases) and ”red” zone (five or more than five cases).

There would be stricter guidelines for the red zone.

Similarly, the coronavirus-induced restrictions will continue in those urban areas where the positivity rate is more than five per cent.
