    City Gyms & Shopping malls likely to Open

    Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the health department has suggested allowing the opening of the gyms in the same line of the shops from now on till August 15.

    Guwahati:  After the long wait for over four months since the lockdown began in the country in March, city gymnasiums are likely to open for business from August 3.

    Assam health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday said that the health department has suggested the state government to allow the opening of the gyms in the city in the same line of the shops from now on till August 15.

    The state government has also allowed opening of the shopping malls.

    “Like the shops on one side are allowed to open, the gyms and shopping malls can open too.  If they fall on the same side of the road with other shops, they can be allowed to open. Strict adhering to the COVID protocols is a must,” Sarma said.

    However, daily and weekly markets will remain closed as well as the night curfew to prevail for the time being.

    He said that Chief Secretary will soon issue detailed guidelines on the matter. However, no official notification has yet been issued in this regard till filling of this report.

    The city which had turned into a COVID 19 hotbed has shown some signs of improvement recently. It has witnessed a falling trend in the numbers of positive cases in the last couple of days.

     The minister said that due to the imposition of lockdown in Guwahati, the COVID scene in the city has improved. “On July 4, the city had recorded 777 Covid 19 cases which have come down to below 300 now. I hope the situation will improve if the denizens here continue to adhere to the COVID protocols strictly,” he said.
