Owing to surge in Covid cases in Chandigarh, the UT administration may not go ahead with some relaxations provided under Unlock 3 guidelines issued by the central government. The UT will be issuing its final decision on Thursday.
Sources in UT administration said that they will not go ahead with the removal of night curfew as allowed by Centre in unlock 3 and rather the timings will be stricter.
“We may continue with night curfew and rather are thinking of making the timings even more strict, like curfew from 8 pm to 5 am. We will decide in the meeting tomorrow,” a senior officer of the administration said. Even as Centre has allowed gyms and yoga institutes to open from August 5, the UT is yet to take a call.
