Curfew timings in East Khasi Hills will remain the same – from 12 midnight to 5 am – despite indications that the government may reimpose night curfew from 10 pm daily.
Meghalaya has shown an increase in Covid cases this month, with active infections briefly crossing 200.
The state, in recent months, had steadily loosened restrictions on offices, schools, colleges, places of worship and sports events and facemask wearing had become almost a rarity in certain parts of the state, including at election rallies led by top ministers in the government in Garo Hills.
On April 9 it was revealed that a meeting of top civil servants recommended that, in order to rein in the spread of Covid-19, night curfew would start again from 10 pm.
However, in an order today, the District Magistrate kept the curfew timings the same for the period until April 18.
