Unlock 5 guideline

 Unlock 5 guideline Declared

Activities that had stopped in the Corona period are slowly gaining momentum. The Unlock 4 limit expires on Wednesday. It is hoped that the guideline of Unlock 5 can be announced by the Home Ministry on Tuesday. Step-by-step steps have been taken since July after the nationwide lockdown started on March 24 to curb the spread of the corona virus. So far, public places like malls, salons, restaurants, gyms have been opened in four phases of unlock. In the previous guidelines issued under Unlock Four, students of 9th to 12th class were given conditional exemption to go to school, open places like gym, yoga center.

Expectations from the Unlock 5 Guidelines

Overall, only much-needed services have been allowed so far, while entertainment venues such as cinema halls, swimming pools, entertainment parks, etc. have not been opened. Permission was also granted to hold some public ceremonies with limited people. Meanwhile, schools, colleges and trains have not been fully opened. In this case, their permission is expected in the guidelines coming today under Unlock 5. However, opening primary schools is unlikely.

Will there be permission for public meetings?

In view of the festivals in the month of October and the Assembly elections in Bihar, some more public events may be allowed. At the same time, the number of people can be increased in the public events which were already allowed. Political rallies are also expected to be allowed. The Mamata Banerjee government of West Bengal has already given permission to set up a pandal for Durga Puja. However, the Mamata government has imposed conditions like keeping the pandals open from all sides, putting masks on the devotees, organizers and others and keeping sanitizers in places in the pandals. The strictest condition is that no more than 100 people can gather in a pandal at a time.

The ministry of home affairs has announced an in depth guideline for Unlock 5, or for reopening to be effective from October 1, shortly. Despite a steep rise within the number of Covid-19 cases within the country, the house ministry has made it clear that there would be more relaxations and fewer restrictions, though local administrations in some states are heavily counting on voluntary curfew, local lockdowns etc.

Here are the guidelines:

* Cinemas/ theatres/ multiplexes are going to be permitted to open with upto 50% of their capaciousness , for which, SOP are going to be issued by Ministry of data & Broadcasting.

* Online/ distance learning shall still be the well-liked mode of teaching and shall be encouraged.
