Imphal: Amid a rise in COVID-19 cases in the state, the Manipur government on Friday decided to extend the ongoing curfew restrictions in the entire valley areas, besides the two hill districts, as preventive measures till June 30.

The restrictions will remain in force in Imphal West, Imphal East, Kakching, Thoubal, Bishnupur, Churachandpur and Ukhrul districts. However, additional activities — apart from the ones already permitted — will now be allowed.

However, inter-district movement from the remaining nine districts where curfew is not in place (Senapati, Kangpokpi, Kamjong, Tengnoupal, Chandel, Pherzawl, Noney, Tamenglong and Jiribam) to the seven districts under curfew will remain prohibited to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Here’s a list of additional activities that have now been allowed:

  1. Airlines’ city booking reservation office from 10 am to 2 pm (except Sunday) by taking adequate precaution and strictly following COVID-19 appropriate behaviour.
  2. Railway reservation office at MSRTC complex from 10 am to 2 pm (except Sunday) by taking adequate precaution and strictly following COVID-19 appropriate behaviour.
  3. Bakery operations with in situ workers by taking adequate precaution and strictly following COVID-19 appropriate behaviour.
