Notification from the District Collectors office today has given the guidelines for Unlock 4 in Udaipur district.
As per the notification, containment areas have been defined as those where recent COVID cases have been found. Those areas which were under prohibitory orders, will remain so as per the schedule. No relaxations will be allowed in these areas.
Guidelines for Educational Institutes
Notification issued from the Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's office today read that lockdown will remain in place in containment areas for another month till 30 September. The relaxation on open air theatres, as per MHA GoI guidelines will be effected from September 21 onwards.
Intra state travel is already permitted without any restriction. However, with complete relaxation of interstate travel, Udaipur's borders with Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh will see increased traffic and the risk of infection from incoming traffic will increase tremendously.
The District Administration has been handed the responsibility of demarcating the containment zones under guidelines of the MoHFW, GoI. The objective of the containment guidelines will be to effectively break the chain of transmission.
As far as Udaipur is concerned, prohibitory orders are in place in very small pockets spread across the district. The prohibitory orders do not restrict any mohalla or lane or bylane. The house where the COVID patient is found, has restrictions around it, that too nominal. There is no control as was there earlier, related to the movement of people near the containment area.
With the number of cases rising exponentially, what does the Unlock 4 relaxations have in store for the City of Lakes? Unless the public adheres to social distancing norms effectively, the number of cases will keep on increasing. UNLOCK 4 guidelines apparently have left the precautions against the COVID pandemic in the hands of the people.
