The West Bengal government on Friday announced a partial lockdown in the state as Covid-19 cases continue on an upward trend.

During the partial lockdown, shopping malls, restaurants, beauty parlours, gyms, spas, and swimming pools will remain closed in the state.

Market places will be allowed to stay open once in the morning between 7 am and 10 am. The second window for opening market places will be between 3 pm and 5 pm.

However, Medical shops, medical equipment outlets, grocery stores have been kept out of the purview of the Bengal government’s order on Covid-19 restrictions. Home deliveries will also be allowed.
