Sixty-hr long shutdown lifted from 3 districts of Odisha

Bhubaneswar:26/4/20: The 60-hours long complete shutdown that was imposed in three districts- Bhadrak, Jajpur and Balasore- was lifted at 10 am today as per schedule.

Though the shutdown was lifted, lockdown norms will be followed here. Meanwhile, the administrative authorities are on their toes to monitor the coronavirus situation in the districts as these districts recorded a spike in Covid-19 positive cases recently.

According to available information, the Bhadrak district collector issued few regulations and norms that are directed to be followed by the shopkeepers in the district.

“As the shut down is over at 10 AM, please do not rush to markets. Enough food supplies and vegetables are available. Take your time to go to markets so as to avoid overcrowding. Follow social distancing norms,” said Bhadrak collector Gyanaranjan Das

Jajpur District Collector also announced about lifting the curfew-like norms through a post on Twitter

Police DG Abhay tweets, “I compliment residents of Bhadrak, Balasore & Jajpur for observing complete shutdown & cooperating with police & administration in its implementation. I urge them to continue to practice social distancing.”
