In view of the declining curve, authorities relaxed the curbs but haven’t relieved them completely. Social places like theatres, gyms, restaurants, swimming pools and water parks could operate with only 50 per cent capacity. Whereas beaches, gardens and parks would open to the fullest capacity.

Weddings can be held with 25 per cent attendance or 200 guests in open grounds and banquet halls. All religious gatherings/ Bhajans or folk entertainment were also allowed to be held with a capacity of 50 per cent.  The order permitted a 25 per cent seating capacity for sports and other events that demanded an audience. All local markets and tourist spots can now operate as per their normal timings keeping COVID behaviour in place.
