As the corona situation did not come under control then the government extended the tenure of ‘all out strict restrictions’ from April 14 to 21. Later the lockdown was extended till midnight May 30 in several stages.
In the next stage the tenure of restrictions was extended till midnight of June 6 restoring the ongoing conditions to prevent corona transmission. In this period inter-district bus, launch and train services were allowed for operation as well as public transport. Besides, hotels and restaurants were allowed to open keeping half of the seats vacant for taking food.
