BMC clarifies night curfew to continue in Mumbai from 11 pm to 5 am

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has clarified that the night curfew will continue in Mumbai from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. The clarification issued by an order signed by BMC Chief Iqbal Chahal said that there is no restriction on the movement of people from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., but a gathering of people is prohibited at all times.

 

The BMC also clarified that while shops and establishments will be allowed to remain open till 10 p.m. on all days of the week, malls will have to remain shut. It added that medical stores and chemist shops can remain open 24×7. Mr. Chahal said in his order that Mumbai had a positivity rate of 1.76 per cent and the oxygen bed occupancy is 18.97 per cent.

 

While these are rates for level-1 resections, the State Government had last month issued orders that local bodies relax below level-3 restrictions. While in the lockdown relaxation orders issued yesterday, there was no major relief for restaurants. Hotels and restaurants will be allowed to remain open till 4 p.m. on all days for dine-in including weekends. The BMC allowed all indoor and outdoor sports activities except for the operation of swimming pools and other sporting activities where close physical contact is required. The BMC has also allowed film shooting in Mumbai by following COVID-19 norms.
