All cinema halls in Maharashtra will be allowed to open after October 22, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s office said in a tweet this afternoon, as the state has reduced control in the wake of the Kovid case.
The Chief Minister’s Office further said that the protocol to be followed after the reopening of cinema halls is in progress and will be released soon.
Maharashtra, which has logged into the country’s highest overall covid case, is slowly reducing the limitation as the pace of vaccination increases. In Mumbai, 41 per cent of the population is fully vaccinated and 88 per cent people get their first dose.
Schools across the state will open from October 4. “We are starting school from October 4. It will be 5-12 classes in rural areas and 8-12 classes in urban areas. To reach this conclusion, we have consulted the task force on Kovid … We have taken their opinion and included it in the official resolution. We have discussed with the department and the health department has also given us clearance and the Chief Minister has given us permission today, ”said state education minister Barsha Gaikwad.
On Friday, the state government also announced that all places of worship would be reopened from October 7, the first day of Navratri. Shri Thackeray’s office tweeted, “All shrines will be reopened for devotees from the first day of Navratri, i.e. October 2021.”
Even as states gradually relaxed bans, the central government is constantly reminding people to be vigilant before the festive season.
