A health worker collects swab samples of a woman for COVID testing in wake of spike in coronavirus cases in Jammu. 

A night curfew will be imposed in Jammu winter capital city from Wednesday as COVID-19 positivity rate is on the rise in the region, a top district official said.

Violation of the restrictions will invite strict action, District Magistrate Anshul Garg warned on Tuesday.

"In view of increasing positivity rate in Jammu, DDMA imposes night curfew from 10 pm to 6 am from 17th November (Wednesday) onwards," Garg said in a tweet.

He advised people living in the city to follow COVID-19 SOP and get fully vaccinated.
