Guwahati: The Assam government on Tuesday extended the COVID-19 curfew in the state till June 22 with minor relaxations.
In capital town Guwahati, the curfew has been relaxed by one hour. All shops, commercial establishments, restaurants, dhabas, government and private offices will shut down by 1300 hrs on all days instead of 12 noon.
“Except districts, there will be a total ban on movement of individuals from 1400 hrs to 0500 hrs daily in the state,” health minister Keshab Mahanta told reporters.
Eight districts–Chirang, Udalguri, West Karbi Anglong, Bongaigaon, Majuli, Dima Hasao, South Salmara, and Charaideo—have given more relaxation due to the lower number of daily Covid cases and active caseload.
The curfew will come into force in these eight districts from 1700 hrs to 0500 hrs.
The inter-district travel in the state will remain suspended till June 22.
All state government employees, who have received the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, have been asked to attend office from Monday.
