With an aim to arrest the spread of Covid-19, the Uttarakhand government has decided to re-impose a seven-day long curfew, starting tomorrow. The restrictions will be in place till 17 August.

The state had last week extended the night curfew and other Covid-related curbs till 10 August despite a fall in new positive cases.

The order issued by chief secretary Sukhbir Singh Sindhu said the government and private schools which were opened for classes nine and 10 were asked to strictly follow the Covid standard operating procedure.

District administrations were directed to ensure Covid-appropriate behaviour by visitors in popular tourist places since large crowds have been gathering there on weekends.

Central and state government offices had opened with 100% capacity. Offices in the private sector were also allowed to open with full capacity but asked to encourage their employees to work from home as much as possible.

Uttarakhand recorded 31 new Covid-19 cases and one death on Monday while 47 patients recovered, according to the health department.
