Mysore/Mysuru: The Mysuru City Police is fully geared up to enforce daily night curfew from June 29 (tomorrow) and the Sunday full lockdown (from July 5) as decided and directed by the State Government. The measures will resemble the first phase of lockdown that was imposed in March-April, complete with barricading and Police patrol. This is to deter people coming out of their homes between 8 pm to 5 am. 

The Karnataka Government yesterday decided to re-impose Sunday curfews in a bid to contain the transmission of the Novel Coronavirus. Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa announced that Sunday curfews, beginning July 5. “No activities shall be permitted except essential services and supplies,” he said. The Government also decided to extend the timing of night curfew (from 9 pm to 5 am) to 8 pm to 5 am with effect from June 29. 

Besides, all Government offices shall remain closed on all Saturdays from July 10. The decision to this effect was taken at a meeting chaired by Yediyurappa with the Ministers and officials amid growing opposition outcry to impose stringent lockdown to contain COVID-19 cases in the State.
