Hotels, food courts, restaurants and bars in the state have been allowed to resume operations from Oct. 5 at 50% capacity or as prescribed by local authorities.

“It is hereby informed that the restaurants and bars will remain open from 8:00 am and close at 10:00 pm sharp, or as directed by the respective municipal commissioners or district collectors (depending on the prevalent situation of Covid-19 pandemic),” Dr. Dhananjay Savalkar, joint director (tourism), said in the letter issued on Wednesday.

He also said that all the stakeholder restaurants and bars from the state need to follow the timings compulsorily.
