Jaipur : The Rajasthan government on Sunday announced the end of weekend curfew that was implemented during the second wave of coronavirus. The Ashok Gehlot-led government has also allowed reopening of cinema halls with certain restrictions, skill training centres and other outdoor activities. Fresh guidelines in this regard have been released on Saturday by the state departments.

Here is what is allowed and not allowed:

# Cinema halls/theatres/multiplex operators who have made their seating capacity information online will be allowed to open with 50 per cent capacity from 9 am to 8 pm only for those persons who have got at least the first dose of vaccine.

# Skill development centres in the state will be allowed to open with 50 per cent capacity from 6 am to 8 pm with the same condition.

# Marriage functions will be permitted from 6 am to 8 pm with a maximum of 25 people. However, the number of guests can be increased to a maximum of 50 on the basis of a review by the area sub-divisional magistrate.

# Those who are coming from outside the state and have got the first dose of vaccine will no longer require a negative RT-PCR test report or home/institutional quarantine.

The number of deaths due to coronavirus has dropped drastically in the state. On Friday, only one person lost his life due to COVID 19 infection, taking the death toll to 8,943, while 62 new cases took the infection tally to 9,53,018, according to an official report issued.
