In wake of the COVID-19 cases in the district, the Gautam Budh Nagar administration on Monday evening announced the extension of the COVID-19 curbs in the district under Section 144 of the CrPC.
The restrictions in Noida and Greater Noida will now continue till June 30, 2021.
The announcement to extend the COVID-19 curbs in the district came after the UP government relaxed the lockdown restrictions in the state's 60 districts where active COVID-19 cases were below 600 and ordered extension of curbs where active cases are over 600.
In line with the order, the Gautam Buddh Nagar administration extended the restrictions imposed as the district currently has more than 600 active cases.
"In pursuant to the revised order dated May 30, 2021, the Covid conditions would remain in place here as the number of cases is higher than 600 in GB Nagar. Once the cases reduce from 600, the restrictions would automatically get over,” says the order issued by Gautam Buddh Nagar additional deputy police commissioner (law and order), Shraddha Pandey.
Meanwhile, movement within Noida, Uttar Pradesh and outside the state is permitted on production of valid e-passes.
