Not to be under the “illusion”
However, CM also advised all the units not to be under the “illusion” that the COVID-19 pandemic is stopped and asked them to be alert. Also, people, should be careful and follow all the precautionary preventive measures.
“It is true we have relaxed the lockdown except for few districts, but don’t go by the illusion that the COVID has passed, we will have to wear masks, maintain distance and sanitize our hands frequently,” Yediyurappa said.
Previously, the state has further relaxed the Covid-19 restraints in 17 districts where the positivity rate is below 5 percent, including Bangalore, starting from Monday, allowing all shops to function from 6 AM to 5 PM and public transport to continue operations with 50 percent capacity.
