The Karnataka government on Friday issued an order announcing that the night curfew imposed in the state due to coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic has been withdrawn with immediate effect.
The night curfew was initially imposed in an order dated July 3 and was extended multiple times in a bid to contain the virus.
The night curfew was put into force in Karnataka in April 2021, along with other lockdown restrictions, during the second wave of COVID-19.
The order dated November 5, issued by P Ravi Kumar, Chief Secretary and Chairman of the state Executive Committee, says that the decision to withdraw night curfew in the state will come into force with immediate effect.
The decision to remove the night curfew and further ease restrictions imposed due to Covid-19 was taken after a sustained decline in fresh infections and high vaccination coverage.
However no mention is made yet again regarding the removal of RTPCR for travelers coming from Maharashtra and Kerala.
