In the wake of the Kovid case, schools in Orissa are closed to all classes – Times of India

Bhubaneswar: With the increase in COVID-19 caseload in the state in the last 72 hours and detection of more Omicron cases, the Orissa government on Wednesday decided to extend the night curfew in the city by one hour and stop physical classes up to Class XII. Special Relief Commissioner PK Jena said the new sanctions would be effective from 5am on January 7 to 5am on February 1.

The night curfew will now be imposed from 9pm to 5am in all urban areas of the state from 10pm to 5am. He said only necessary activities would be allowed during the night curfew.


New guidelines have been announced after the daily COVID-19 case crossed the 1000 mark for the first time in almost five months, the SRC announced.

Jenna said Omicron’s spread is three times faster than the Delta variant and Orissa has seen a positive increase in the last four to five days.

“It looks like a new wave of COVID-19 has started in Orissa,” he said.


The government has limited the number of guests at weddings and yarn ceremonies to 100. Only 30 people can participate in ‘Barate’, Jenna said.

Both public and private offices will run at 50 percent capacity and there will be no physical classes until the 12th grade. Online classes will be conducted and matriculation assessment test will also be conducted.

The SRC said in an order that a maximum of 100 people would be allowed to attend official meetings or training programs.


The cinema hall can run with a maximum capacity of 50 percent. Similarly, hotels and bars will be allowed to operate at 50 per cent of their seating capacity and may be open until 9pm with street vendors, it said.

The ‘Journey’ and the Open Air Theater can only accommodate 1000 spectators in compliance with the COVID-19 protocol, but no cultural events or trade fairs will be allowed, the order said. Small shops and roadside outlets should be allowed to stand up to five people at a time.

The government has banned all socio-religious and cultural events in any hotel, park and other public place.


The SRC said the owner would be held accountable for violating the guidelines in any mall and store and the concerned outlet would remain closed for seven days as per the epidemic law.
