Gatherings permitted at public places now
Apart from allowing schools, colleges and coaching centres to operate at their pre-COVID capacity, the authority has also lifted the restrain on the number of guests that can attend wedding ceremonies or other functions now. Notably, only 200 people were allowed to attend wedding functions earlier. With the new guideline in effect, all the academic staff and non-educational staff will be able to come back to the institutes. Moreover, other functions and gatherings including political, sports, entertainment, cultural, religious gatherings and festival celebrations, among others are allowed at public places now, reads the order.
Masks, sanitisation & social distancing still compulsory for all
While the state is witnessing a steady decline in fresh COVID cases, 4 new cases were detected in Rajasthan on Monday taking the active count to 42 cases, as of now. Even though there is a downfall in the case count, the pandemic is still not over yet which is why the order highlights the need to ensure that the general public adheres to COVID-appropriate behaviour. Apart from following the rigorous 'testing, tracking, treating and tracing' routine, the authority is focusing on the vaccination drives to trap and tackle the spread of this deadly virus. Meanwhile, masks, social distancing and sanitisation are still compulsory for all.
