The sequence of relief from COVID lockdown measures is continuing as the new year has set in. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, in his COVID-19 review meeting today, announced that people seeking to organise social, religious or political gatherings will not need to take permissions from the relevant authorities. They simple need to inform the authorities of the event. However, the limit to the number of people in such gatherings, will need to be adhered to as per previous orders.
The Chief Minister was reviewing the control measures on COVID-19 through a Video conferernce conducted from his residence today afternoon. He was apprised of the falling COVID cases in the state, and the decisions taken were in line with the prevailing situation.
Ashok Gehlot expressed his appreciation on the administrative efforts across the state and said that the situation in Rajasthan is under control. However, he instructed that easing of restrictions (Night Curfew has also been removed) does not indicate that the pandemic is over. The safety protocols that have been instructed and recommended need to be adhere to continuously - failing which, if the trends reverse in the negative direction, all restrictions will once again be imposed.
