Punjab Unlock 4 Guidelines: Days after the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued new guidelines for opening up more activities in areas outside the Containment Zones, the Punjab government on Monday issued new guidelines for Unlock 4.
Meanwhile, the Punjab Government has announced that there will be total curfew on weekend (Saturdays and Sundays) in all 167 municipal towns of the state up to September 30.
Likewise, the night curfew will be implemented from 7:00 pm to 5:00 am within municipal limits of all the cities of Punjab throughout the week.
Only 3 persons including the driver would be allowed in a 4-wheeler vehicle while all the buses and public transport will be allowed sitting for only 50 percent with no person standing.
Section 144 has been invoked. Ban on social, political, religious, gatherings, protests and demonstrations have been announced throughout the state.
The Chief Minister has, however, ordered relaxation concerning the opening of shops in the five worst-affected cities of Amritsar, Jalandhar, Patiala, Mohali & Ludhiana. The condition of only 50 percent of the non-essential shops being open on a given day in these cities has now been removed.
