After enforcing the 40-day lockdown announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break the chain of fatal coronavirus, the Assam Government has announced several relaxations during the third phase of lockdown scheduled to commence from Monday.
The State is making relaxations since majority of its districts have fallen in the 'Green zone' of the country's COVID-19 map. Relaxations will not be applicable in the four 'Orange' districts namely Morigaon, Bongaigaon, Dhubri and Goalpara.
Addressing a press conference here on Sunday evening, Finance, Health and Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the prime objective of lockdown relaxations was to resume economic activities in the State with maximum cautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. He, however, said that the State would strictly enforce the curfew from 6 pm to 6 am everyday till the third phase of lockdown ends on May 17. During the curfew period, people associated only with essential services will be allowed movement. These include pharmacies, fire, ambulance, and media.
