There will be a complete exemption outside the containment zone. These guidelines will run from June 1 to June 30.
In Madhya Pradesh, on the other hand, the lockdown period will be extended till June 15. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan has said in a statement that given the current situation, the lockdown cannot be fully opened, so the government has decided to extend the lockdown till June 15. However, the guideline will be clear in the next one or two days. Lockdown 4 expires on May 31. The question then arose as to whether the lockdown would be extended or whether everything would be opened normally.
Amidst all this speculation, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has now made it clear that the lockdown in Madhya Pradesh will be extended till June 15. The Madhya Pradesh government has taken this decision due to the increasing number of Corona cases. Big cities like Bhopal and Indore are still in the grip of Corona, so the government does not want to take any risk of ending the lockdown altogether.
