Covid curbs in Delhi: Dos and Don’ts

Night curfew will be clamped between 10 pm and 5 am in Delhi.

Night curfew will be clamped between 10 pm and 5 am in Delhi and schools, colleges, cinemas and gyms will be shut as part of the new restrictions that have come into force to contain the surge in Covid-19 cases.
