Uttarakhand government has extended Covid curfew in the state for another week from today with more relaxations. Cabinet Minister Subodh Uniyal said people travelling from one place to another within Uttarakhand will no longer be required to carry a negative RT-PCR or Rapid Antigen test report.
Earlier, it was mandatory for people going from plain areas of the state to the hill districts to carry negative RT-PCR or Rapid Antigen test reports. Shops and business establishments in the state can now open from 8 am to 9 pm six days a week. The earlier opening time for them in Uttarakhand was 8 am to 7 pm. Water parks have also been permitted to open with 50 per cent capacity from today. Rest of the conditions will remain the same during the extended curfew that begins today.
