Also, those having curfew passes issued by the government are also allowed to move.

On Tuesday, Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij had said, "after Sonepat, the state is considering sealing borders in Gurugram and Faridabad districts with the national capital. The state is considering sealing all borders with Delhi, including those in Gurugram and Faridabad."
