Earlier, the State Government had imposed a weekend shut down in 10 districts including Ganjam, Gajapati, Khurda, Cuttack, Jagatsinghpur, Jajpur, Balasore, Mayurbhanj, Keonjhar and Jharsuguda.

The police administration has tightened the security to enforce the complete shutdown of non-essential services. While all essential services including health care, drinking water, electricity supply and ATM counters were allowed to remain open during the shutdown.
