Multiplexes, gyms & stadiums to reopen across Lucknow & other UP districts from July 5!

The state administration has maintained that strict adherence to all COVID-related protocols must be followed.

With the diffusing COVID situation across all areas of Uttar Pradesh, the state government has announced the resumption of cinema halls, multiplexes, gyms and stadiums from July 5 onwards. While all these facilities will be permitted to re-open their gates on July 5, the state administration has maintained that strict and assured adherence to all COVID-related protocols and guidelines must be followed.


COVID safety protocols to be followed without any laxity

It has been more than 3 months since the state stepped into the horrifying episode of the second wave of accelerated infections. Starting with weekend and night curfews, the state was gradually clamped under complete lockdown restrictions on May 1. After almost a 40-day period, the lockdown curbs were relaxed in the state, in the second week of June and the unlock interventions have amplified since then. Now, the cinema halls, multiplexes, gyms and stadiums are being reopened post a long-timed halt.

Amid anticipations of an impending third wave, it is important for the owners of all such facilities to make sure that the COVID safety protocols are sufficiently followed. As a part of this, all lags must be checked in time ensuring that no event leads to a revived spread of infections. Additionally, it is to be noted that weekend curfews shall be continued in the state.

Businesses affected direly during the times of the pandemic

During the troubled times of the pandemic, the retail and business activities of cinema halls and multiplexes have been drastically affected. It has been stated that multiplex owners are asking for cuts and relaxation in their electricity bills. In view of this, the state government will soon address their issues and concerns.
