In Guwahati, the curfew has been relaxed by one hour. The curfew will remain in force in Guwahati from 2 pm to 5 am every day till June 22.

All shops, commercial establishments, restaurants, dhabas, government and private offices in Guwahati will shut down by 1 pm on all days.

Earlier, all shops and commercial establishments are being shut down at 12 am on all days.

“Except in eight districts and in Guwahati, there will be a total ban on movement of individuals from 1 pm to 5 am daily in the state,” health minister Keshab Mahanta told reporters.

Eight districts–Chirang, Udalguri, West Karbi Anglong, Bongaigaon, Majuli, Dima Hasao, South Salmara, and Charaideo—have given more relaxation due to the lower number of daily Covid cases and active caseload.

The curfew will come into force in these eight districts from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The inter-district travel in the state will remain suspended till June 22.

All state government employees, who have received the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, have been asked to attend office from Monday.
