Mumbai on Tuesday lifted an ongoing night curfew and eased restrictions on restaurants and theatres in wake of an improvement in Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic crisis.
Revised guidelines issued by the city’s municipal commissioner, IS Chahal, said restaurants and theatres can operate with 50 per cent capacity as per timings followed before the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic. Further, beaches, gardens and parks can stay open with 50 per cent capacity.
The administration also allowed swimming pools and water parks to function with 50 per cent capacity. “Local tourist spots to remain open as per normal timing. Weekly Bazaars to remain open as per normal timing,” the order read.
“25 per cent audience is permitted in competitive sports and other such activities, including horse racing. Marriages may have guests up to 25 per cent of the capacity of the open ground and banquet halls or 200 whichever is lower,” it added.
The order further said all places would have to strictly have to adhere to Covid-appropriate behaviour and any other rules as prescribed by the state government.
Mumbai recorded 803 new cases of the Covid-19 disease and seven related deaths in the last 24 hours. Across Maharashtra, the fresh Covid count stood at 14,372 along with 94 deaths, the health department said in its daily bulletin.
