Prime News, Karnataka, Bengaluru. July 13:-Karnataka, which has been witnessing a steady decline in Covid-19 cases, is likely to further relax restrictions, lift night curfew and open pubs from July 19 — the day Unlock 4.0 is expected to come into force.
The state is also likely to reopen malls and extend business hours of shops and establishments.
“Some relaxations are on the cards and the issues of lifting the weekend curfew and reducing the hours of night curfew are being discussed. The chief minister will take a final call after the GoM meeting,” home minister Basavaraj Bommai was quoted as saying last week.
Last week Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa met mall owners who sought permission to resume businesses. Officials in the chief minister’s office said Yediyurappa has responded positively to the request provided the businesses maintain the COVID protocol. The Karnataka government may also give a nod to opening of multiplexes and cinema halls with limited entry.
