A lot of uncertainty is prevailing regarding the additional restrictions including night curfew etc. to be imposed on the New Year’s Eve in Chandigarh.
Hon’ble Governor of Punjab-cum-Administrator, U.T., Chandigarh took a review meeting in this regard with Principal Secretary Health, Director General of Police and Deputy Commissioner, Chandigarh.
Considering that the number of active cases and positive cases being detected everyday are coming down and no case of new strain found in UK has been detected in Chandigarh, it was decided that there is no need of any additional restrictions or night curfew for the new year’s eve.
However, the Administrator directed Director General of Police to ensure that the existing COVID-19 appropriate behavior and the restrictions on number of persons and opening & closing of hotels, restaurants etc. should be strictly enforced.
