The new COVID-19 guidelines issued by MHA as part of the fifth phase of the unlock phase permit certain activities beyond the Containment Zones.

These activities shall continue to be bound by the national directives for COVID-19 management which include wearing a face mask, maintaining minimum distance and not spitting in public places.

Pertinently, the new relaxations would not be applicable to areas falling under containment zones. Only essential activities will continue to be allowed in such areas. The lockdown in these areas will remain in force until October 31. The areas being put in containment will have to be notified online by District Collectors.

Further, the State is expected not to impose any lockdown at the State/District/sub-division/city level outside containment zones without prior consultation with the Centre.
