Curfew in Udaipur will be imposed between 6pm till 6am from 10 April till 30 April. This order, which has come from the Chief Ministers office late in the evening today, overrides the curfew hours imposed by the District Collector last week, which had kept the curfew hours from 8pm onwards. Udaipur, which was one of the more controlled districts in the state and an example of control and discipline, has been identified as high risk in the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
Taking cogniscance of the worsening COVID situation in the City of Lakes, the orders from the CMO follow a day long meeting the CM had held with all the District Collectors today. Udaipur is paying the price for indiscipline and negligence over the last month.

No marriage or other events involving public gatherings will be permitted. These containment area restrictions will be effective till 22 April.
