Lockdown 3 - 14 days extension - 3 May to 17 May 2020

The Union health ministry has split 733 districts across India into red, orange and green zones, designating all metropolitan cities (Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad) into the 'no activity' zone as the lockdown was extended by two weeks beyond May 4.

According to the list, there are 130 red zones, where more stringent restrictions will be enforced post May 3. However, there will be partial easing in orange zones and liberal easing in green zones.

During this time, the number of non-hotspot districts, also known as orange zones, increased from 207 to 297, they said.

The government has already identified 15 districts in nine states, including Delhi, Maharashtra and Gujarat, as having "high case load". Of these, seven -- Hyderabad (Telangana), Pune (Maharashtra), Jaipur (Rajasthan), Indore (Madhya Pradesh), Ahmedabad (Gujarat), Mumbai (Maharashtra) and Delhi show particularly high case volumes.

Other high case load places that are "critical" in the battle against COVID-19 include -- Vadodara (Gujarat), Kurnool (Andhra Pradesh), Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), Jodhpur (Rajasthan), Agra (Uttar Pradesh), Thane (Maharashtra), Chennai (Tamil Nadu) and Surat (Gujarat

PM Modi had said that these relaxations will be conditional, and asked countrymen to ensure the coronavirus disease doesn't spread.

Here is a list of all that is going to be available in lockdown 3, i.e. from 4 May 2020:

Private vehicles: The Home Ministry which released the guidelines after PM Modi's address permitted taking out private vehicles but only during emergencies like going to a veterinarian doctor. While two people - driver plus one passenger at the back seat - are permitted to go out in a four-wheeler, only one person is allowed on a two-wheeler.

Cab services: Taxis, autorickshaw and cab services are shut till May 3. However, if your bike or scooter needs to be repaired, mechanics will be available.

Offices: The government has announced staggered shifts and lunch breaks for offices. The guidelines also say that people will have to maintain a distance of 10 feet while working in offices, and face masks will be compulsory. The government has allowed homemade face masks too - something PM Modi used while addressing the nation. While IT companies have been allowed to call 50 per cent of the staff to offices, other sectors have been allowed 33 per cent of workforce. Among other measures announced by the government, more than four people should not ben allowed in office lifts, and only big vehicles are meant to be use during pick and drop of employees so that safe distance can be maintained.

Who will work from home: People aged 65 or more, and those with children aged five years or less. Offices have also been asked to install thermal screening and hand sanitisers.

E-commerce: Amazon, Flipkart etc have been allowed to deliver stuff to people's homes, but in a fresh notification issued on Sunday, the Home Ministry clarified that these platforms will be allowed to deliver only essential goods. Kirana and other grocery shops have been allowed, but they will have to follow social distancing norms.

Construction activities: The government has also allowed construction activities from Monday. The real estate firms are, however, not allowed to bring in labourers from outside a state.

Agricultural activities: Packaging and marketing of food products allowed, but the companies involved in this business will have to follow social distancing. Brick kilns too have been allowed to operate.

Services: Electricians, plumbers motor mechanics, carpenter, courier services have been exempted from lockdown and can start operations from tomorrow. The cable and DTH workers will be allowed to carry out repair and augment supplies.

Transport of goods: The transport of all goods have been allowed from Monday. The Railways have already said that its goods trains will function during the lockdown to ensure supply of essential items. Such goods trains and cargo flights have been allowed to operate with two drivers and a helper.

Essential services: Banks, ATMs, post offices, petrol and CNG pumps, hospitals, nursing homes, laboratories, medical equipment centres will continue to operate the way they have been since the lockdown began. Ambulances, doctors and scientists are allowed to cross over from one state to another.

These relaxations are, however, not allowed in areas identified as Covid-19 hotspots.
