Know The New Guidelines For Lockdown 4.0”

Unlike the previous phases of the lockdown, the Union government has asked the respective state and Union Territory governments to decide the delineation of red, green and orange zones. The zones can be a district, or a municipal corporation/ municipality or even smaller administrative units such as sub-divisions, etc, as decided by States and UTs.

By Monday evening, several states, including Punjab, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Sikkim, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, had given permission for full-fledged ecommerce, except in containment zones. State government is only particular about containment zones. Strict perimeter control shall be maintained, and no movement of persons would be allowed, except for medical emergencies and for maintaining the supply of essential goods and services.

While the state governments have not yet officially come out with rules and regulations for operations in their specific areas, many relaxations have already been offered.

Online sellers and logistics companies said they too were exercising caution until state governments issue orders.

The industry continues to face the challenge of availability of limited manpower for warehouses and delivery. Online/distance learning shall continue to be permitted and shall be encouraged. However, spectators will not be allowed in these complexes. Movement of individuals by trains has been permitted earlier by the MHA through the May 11 order.

Nagaland Chief Secretary, Temjen Toy today informed that all existing guidelines with regard to the lockdown in all parts of the State will continue to remain operative till issuance of fresh guidelines.

In the order, issued by the Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla to the Chief Secretaries of all states and UTs, it is mentioned that states and UTs cannot dilute restrictions imposed in the MHA guidelines and can only make them stricter based on the local level assessment and the Health Ministry guidelines.

-All religious places/places of worship shall be closed for public. This means it is left to the states to announce guidelines for sale of non-essential items by e-trailers. For funerals/ last rites, the maximum number of persons allowed has been kept at 20.

The National Directives also stipulate additional requirements for workplaces.

To ensure the safety of workers, the guidelines said factory premises should be sanitized round-the-clock. There should be provision for thermal scanning, hand wash, and sanitizers at all entry and exit points and common areas; and all workplaces and other sensitive locations are to be sanitized regularly. "If warehouses are shut once because of violating policies, it's going to be nearly impossible to open shop", a fashion merchandise seller told ET.

Marriage-related gathering shall ensure social distancing, and the maximum number of guests allowed shall not be more than 50. People aged above 65 years, pregnant women, children aged below 10 years shall stay at home except for essential and health purposes. E-commerce activities have not been specifically prohibited in the guidelines, giving them the freedom to restart deliveries. However, in containment zones, only essential activities shall be allowed, as mentioned earlier.

With a view to ensuring safety in offices and work places, employers on best effort basis should ensure that Aarogya Setu is installed by all employees having compatible mobile phones.
