Delhi government issues new Covid guidelines

To control the rising COVID-19 cases in the national capital, the Delhi government issued new guidelines. The Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) held a high-level meeting yesterday. Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, and many government officials joined the meeting.

The weekend curfew was imposed in Delhi from Friday 10 p.m. till Monday 5 a.m. But, the government eased the COVID-19 restrictions for Sunday due to Prakash Purab.

Delhi reported more than fresh COVID 19,000 cases on Monday. If the number of cases has been increased further and the positivity rate is more than 5 per cent for two consecutive days, the government will issue Red Alert as per GRAP. Then a total curfew in the national capital will be in force.

But, as of now, the government has no intentions for the lockdown. CM Kejriwal said that the government does not want to impose a lockdown in the national capital. He asked Delhiites to follow COVID-19 protocols and wear facemasks. They shall cooperate with the government to control the transmission of COVID-19.


Here are the latest guidelines issued by the Delhi government:

  • The government decided to close all restaurants and bars. Only take away facility and home deliveries are allowed.
  • Also, only one weekly market per day per zone has been allowed to operate.
  • The government also directed all private offices to allow Work from Home for their employees. So far, these offices are functioning with half of their employees in the office and the remaining at home. But, now they have been asked to follow work from home for all their employees.
  • All government offices shall work with 50 per cent attendance.
  • As of now, there is no change in the seating capacity in the buses and Metro trains. Earlier, the DDMA allowed 100 per cent seating capacity in them, but standing passengers were not allowed.
