Keeping all the earlier directives and restrictions effective, the government has added some new restrictions, the circular says.
According to the circular, all the tourist spots, resorts, community centres and recreation centres will remain closed during the lockdown.

Public transport services, including inter-district buses, are allowed to run, also at half of their capacities.
All concerned, including passengers, will have to maintain health protocols like wearing masks, the circular adds.
The Deputy Commissioners of the districts which are at high risk are allowed to take necessary steps to contain the virus spread in their areas in consultation with the technical committees, the circular mentions.
