Mangaluru, Jan 15: Weekend curfew enforced in the light of the increasing spread of coronavirus infection in the district is in force from Friday night to Monday morning.
Policemen have been posted at strategic points to make sure that people do not venture outside unnecessarily. They have set up barricades and making enquiries about the purpose from the vehicle users. The district administration has allowed pre-determined functions to be held on a moderate scale and permitted shops dealing in essentials, milk and medicines to remain open. Home delivery personnel too are allowed to operate.
The fact that the police checking is on at different points has come as a dampener to the spirits of those who like to roam around without purpose. As a result, only vehicles which fall within the guidelines of the district administration are moving about and most of the roads are wearing a deserted look.
