Maharashtra government… Yesterday, a day after a turnaround by the state government on the easiness of restrictions announced earlier by an official, Maharashtra announced its Monday 5-stage unlock plan in a late- night order.
The new Guidelines come into force on Monday and divide the districts into five levels, according to positive rates and occupancies of oxygen beds.
The first level will be able to unlock completely without any restrictions in areas with a positive rate of less than five per cent and less than 25 per cent oxygen bed. The first level of unlocking exists in 18 districts.
In districts of less than 1 level all restaurants, malls, salons, movie theatres, shops are open. The second level applies to districts with a positivity of less than 5 percent and oxygen sheets of between 25 and 40 percent.
This category is the State capital of Mumbai. Now movie shoots can be resumed However, malls, restaurants, fitness centres, lounges have been allowed to reopen in areas under level 2.
Marriages and collections with a capacity of 50 percent were also allowed. Bureaux in districts below level 2 can also be reopened with full capacity.
However, local trains in Mumbai will never be operational, the densely populated lifeline of the city.
Buses can operate on full capacity in Mumbai, but passengers cannot travel standing up in order to prevent bus crowding.
The positive rate of Mumbai between 28 May and 3 June was 5.56%, classifying second-level financial capital.
Districts with a positivity rate of 5% and 40% to 60% of the occupancy in a bed with oxygen shall be at Level 3, with a positive 10% to 20% and an occupancy rate of 60% to 75% and a positivity rate of 20% above and above, without a relaxation rate of over 75%..
