“The Indian variant may have spread in the district despite ensuring a 14-day institutional quarantine for all India returnees.”
The strict lockdown means no transport can either enter or leave the district during the lockdown and all forms of inter-district communications will also remain halted except emergency vehicles.
All types of shops except pharmacies will also remain closed during the lockdown. The decision came at a time when the nationwide ongoing restrictions are being eased.
Restrictions on public transport have been lifted in the country since Monday. Also on Monday launches, trains and inter-district buses have also started plying across the country.
