He however warned that cinemas and other public places must adhere to social distancing rules and maintain proper hygiene. This is to prevent the resurgence of the virus within the state.


He saiis, “Let me make it clear that if we do not continue to maintain our guard, and sustain the adherence to all required protocols and guidelines, we will find ourselves in a situation where fresh lockdowns are inevitable. The only way to avoid this is to continue to act responsibly. Maintain the required levels of hygiene, through regular handwashing and use of sanitizers. Wear masks in all public places, avoid non-essential public gatherings, and maintain the prescribed levels of physical distancing at all times
