As we continue to see a downwards trend in new Covid cases across India, the government has released new Standard Operating Procedures and guidelines.
As per the new guidelines, swimming pools will now be open and accessible to everyone. Previously only sportspeople were allowed to use swimming pools. But now everyone will have access to this leisure activity. If you enjoy watching movies in a cinema hall, there’s good news for you too. Cinema halls and theatres will now be allowed to remain open with a higher occupancy. The current occupancy is limited at 50% but it will be revised after consultation between the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting and the Ministry of Home Affairs.
This is a very encouraging news for all of us. The year long restrictions are now showing definite effect as the number of new cases steadily continus to decline. As more and more people get vaccinated, we can hope to return to normal in a few months.
