The 4th phase of the nationwide lockdown which began on Monday to be extended for two more weeks, until May 31 comes with certain relaxations. While the home ministry in fresh guidelines allowed the resumption of app-based cab services, all shops, markets and commercial establishments except those in malls, it asserted that all metro rail services, schools, colleges, hotels, restaurants will continue to remain shut.
As a result of this decision, hoteliers in Karnataka said they will stop take away orders and food deliveries in order to protest the government’s lopsided stand on the lockdown restrictions to curb the spread of coronavirus.
