UP government ease relaxation as Covid cases decline

Amid a dip in the number of coronavirus cases in Uttar Pradesh, today's state government eased Covid-related curbs. It allowed wedding ceremonies and other events to be holding in open spaces.

However, the number of people allowed to attend the ceremony will depend on the area, stated the Uttar Pradesh Home Department.

Announced the State Home Department on Twitter.

"The government of UP has given permission for wedding ceremonies and other events in open places, according to the area. Along with this, compliance with Covid-19 protocol and setting up of Covid-19 help desk at the entrance will be mandatory,"

Earlier, the state government had capped the number of attendees at 50, further relaxing to 100 people on 19th September. As the number of Covid-19 infections continues to decline in the state, the Yogi Adityanath-led UP government has decided to allow the events and marriage ceremonies in the open.

Besides, all the coronavirus norms will have to be following, and a Covid help desk installation is mandatory at the entry gate.

Uttar Pradesh is the first state to inoculate ten crore people. Over 50% of the eligible population has been vaccinating with at least a single shot of the Covid-19 vaccine.
