TNI Bureau: In view of a surge in Covid 19 cases in the State, Odisha Government tightened the Covid restrictions further by launching a crackdown on hotels, restaurants and street food joints that witness a mad rush and have become potential super spreader hotspots.
As part of the new Covid guidelines that will take effect from April 21, 2021, Hotels/Restaurants won’t allow outside persons (other than their in-house resident guests) to dine inside their premises in due compliance of Covid-19 protocols.
