As the State Government has now allowed the reopening and functioning of various establishments in order to provide impetus to the economy it has decided that restaurants & eateries can now remain open till 12 midnight, while shops and establishments can stay open till 11 pm with immediate effect.
However, in order to prevent the transmission of the COVID 19 virus, restrictions like regulating of time, scrupulous adherence to COVID Appropriate Behaviour, requirements of service providers as well as visitors to be fully vaccinated.
“In the wake of the upcoming festival season, it is now felt that restrictions on time of functioning for various establishment like shops, restaurants, hotels, etc. will lead to more crowding in the shorter duration in which they are currently allowed to function” reads the official order.
With this all restaurants and eateries may be allowed to function till midnight i.e till 12 AM and all other establishments that have been allowed to function by the Government may be allowed to function till 11 PM. Local DDMA may restrict these timings further if so deemed fit due to any local requirements but shall not relax it further without consent of SDMA.
