A ten-day lockdown has been imposed on Kalyan-Dombivali. This comes after a decision to impose a lockdown on Thane and Navi Mumbai was taken by the authorities. An official notification has been issued stating that the entire city will remain in lockdown from July 2 to July 12. A notification issued by the Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) on Tuesday evening stated that all business establishments, except health establishments like hospitals, medical stores and dispensaries, will remain closed.

Only those selling essential items like milk, vegetables, fruits and groceries will be able to home-delivery products between 9 in the morning to 5 pm. Buses, auto-rickshaws and taxis, as well as private buses plying from KDMC areas, will not be allowed to ply during this period. The only exception would be for the vehicles which would provide medical emergency services.

Moreover, all private offices, warehouses, factories and commercial establishments will remain closed. Mills, dairy manufacturing units, petrol pumps, CNG and LPG gas agencies will continue to operate. However, only essential vehicles will be able to refuel at petrol and diesel pumps.

Even though liquor shops are said to close, the home delivery of alcohol will continue. There will be a strict ban on the gathering of more than five people in public places. People engaged in essential services, online delivery, press, pharmacy companies and hospitals will be allowed to leave and enter the city, but have to take an e-pass from the Thane Police.

On the other hand, section 144 has been imposed on Mumbai which prohibits any presence or movement of one or more persons in public places. It further prohibits a social gathering of any sort anywhere which includes religious places, although, subject to certain conditions. The order will be effective till July 15, unless withdrawn earlier. Maharashtra currently has 1,74,690 cases of coronavirus.
