Tamil Nadu Relaxes Covid Restrictions; Religious Places, Shopping Centers, and Shops Open

Although its daily Covid-19 count is still well above the 5,000 marks, and the Delta Plus variant threatens the third wave, the Govt. of Tamil Nadu eased the lock-in rules on Friday because it relaxes outdoor activities. According to the latest state notice, the existing restrictions have been extended to July 5, but citizens of Chennai and neighbouring areas have many relaxation measures. Shopping centres, places of worship, clothing and jewellery stores, and gyms are open for business.
