In view of the COVID-19 situation, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) on Saturday extended the curfew on the movement of individuals except for essential activities in the national capital which shall remain into operation till 5 am on June 7 (Monday) or further orders whichever is earlier. 

However, the operations of manufacturing/ production units within closed premises in approved industrial areas and construction activities within their worksites shall be allowed outside the containment zones during the curfew period, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority said.

"DDMA directs to extend the curfew, on movement of individuals (except for essential activities or services) in the territory of NCT of Delhi, till 5 am on June 7," said the DDMA order.

The notification has been issued a day after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced gradual unlocking of Delhi, which has been under strict lockdown since April 19 to combat the second Covid wave.

"The owner of manufacturing or production units or contractors or employees of construction activities shall be responsible for ensuring strict compliance regarding Covid-19 protection."

The order further said that the movement of workers or employees will be allowed only on the possession of e-pass.

To keep an eye on the spread of Covid infection, there will be regular facilities of Covid sample testing at every factory unit and at construction sites.

The DDMA, meanwhile, has also directed the district administrations and district police in the national capital to ensure that people are wearing masks and maintaining social distancing in all mandis, railway stations, ISBT, slum areas as well as people visiting the grocery shops and medical stores.

It added that the market association, Residents Welfare Associations (RWAs) will also be responsible for ensuring compliance of Covid Appropriate behaviour by all the shopkeepers and residents.

Delhi on Saturday recorded 956 fresh COVID-19 cases, the lowest in over two months, and 122 more fatalities from the infection while the positivity rate slumped to 1.19 per cent, according to data shared by the health department.
