All the shops will operate between 6am to 12pm and 144 section will remain imposed. Only emergency services will be allowed after 12pm.
Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy took the decision in the review meeting on COVID over the increase in cases. In the meeting, CM has also discussed other amenities and how to tackle shortage of bed and oxygen cylinders at the hospitals.
On April 24, Andhra government imposed night curfew from 10pm to 5am. Apart from the partial lockdown, the night curfew will continue to remain.
