Additionally, this ruling of extended lockdown for these 20 districts is stated in action till June 7th 2021. The new guidelines will be announced after this specified date only.

These 20 districts have been chosen to put under continued lockdown the reason that they all are having 600 active cases. The rest of them are having numbers that are lesser than this set margin. Which means that they have a better chance of recovery and that they are ready to be unlocked.

Now, if you’re wondering that what all would be allowed during the extended lockdown in these 20 districts then here’s your answer. Currently, only delivery of food items and consumer goods is allowed, except that nothing else new would be allowed in these said districts.

For the rest 55 districts, things will come back to their normal state soon but initially, they’ll be slow. We hope that Uttar Pradesh gets back on track soon enough and that this pandemic gets over, once and for all.
