Decision on cinema halls reopening will be taken next: Keshab Mahanta

Guwahati: Assam state health minister Keshab Mahanta, while briefing the media on Sunday, stated that the decision to reopen cinema halls in the state will be taken next month (October), after reviewing the Covid situation in the state.

Mahanta further added that strict covid protocols will be implemented if cinema halls are reopened even after the covid situation is reviewed.

It may be mentioned that cinema hall owners staged a state-wide protest today against the state government’s decision to keep the halls shut. At a time when all other public gathering places are opened up, there is no point in shutting down the cinema halls in the state, the protesters said.

Further, Mahanta also informed that the ongoing COVID-induced curfew might get relaxed next month during the Durga Puja celebrations, the decision of which will be taken depending on the infection rate.

Meanwhile, classes for Class X students in all high schools, high madrassas, residential schools and day boarding schools will resume from today. Authorities of such schools will ensure that all employees and workers are fully vaccinated.
