Assam To Withdraw All COVID Restrictions From February 15: Himanta Biswa Sarma Assam

Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has said that Assam will withdraw all COIVD-related restrictions from February 15. The decision has been taken as the number of cases have been declining and the overall pandemic situation has improved.

School board examinations, municipal elections, and the by-elections to the Majuli assembly constituency will be held in the next two months, Sarma announced at a press conference.

He however flagged that students appearing for board examinations must get both doses of the vaccination.

There will be no night curfew. Cinema halls and malls will open with full capacity, and weddings can be held through the night but guests must be double vaccinated, he added.

Wearing masks will be mandatory in all places.
