Statewide night curfew from 10 pm-5 am

The Chief Secretary further noted that the night curfew will continue statewide until further orders. “Night curfew will continue to be imposed with a revised timing from 10 pm to 5 am in the state, as per the existing guidelines, with effect from 25.09.2021.”

“Pubs permitted to operate strictly adhering to Covid-19 appropriate behaviour from Coctober 3,” the order mentioned.

“Classes from 6th to 12th permitted to operate for 5 days a week with full strength in districts having a test positivity rate less than 1%…intensive sanitization must be done on Saturdays and Sundays for such schools. In the districts with greater than 1% test positivity rate, the existing arrangement will continue,” Kumar’s order said.

Border vigil to continue

As per the new instructions, strict surveillance at the border posts in districts adjoining Kerala and Maharashtra will continue as per the prevailing guidelines issued by the Department of Health and Family Welfare.

Kumar further said, “The prevailing Covid-19 situation in the state has been reviewed again. Though the state has been witnessing a declining trend in the number of daily cases and positivity rate, there is a need for a continued focus on the five-fold strategy of test-track-treat-vaccination and adherence to Covid-appropriate behaviour, for effective management of Covid-19 and to prevent any potential rise (in cases) especially during the ensuing festival season.”
