On August 16, Assam entered phase 3 of 'Unlock' in which several restrictions that had been earlier enforced were eased and citizens were seen returning to their normal lifestyles almost.
With COVID-19 guidelines in place, the Assam Government-issued relaxations on inter-district movement and night curfew.
Earlier, movement of individuals was prohibited from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, but now the timing has been changed from 9:30 pm to 5:00 pm allowing more time to open businesses and for movement of people. The government has also allowed for establishments on both sides of the streets to open five days a week.
City buses and other modes of public transport have also been allowed to operate subject to maintenance of social distancing and at 50% capacity.
However, weekend lockdown prohibiting movement of individuals at all times, continues to remain in place on Saturdays and Sundays. Public gathering of all sorts also continues to be prohibited.
As Assam continues to 'Unlock', the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise.
Though people can be seen wearing masks, the norms of social distancing seems to have gone for a total toss.
