The entry to Varsha, their official residence, has reportedly been restricted and Covid protocols will be followed during all the official meeting scheduled to take place at Varsha.

Maharashtra CM may announce lockdown in view of rising Covid cases in the state

Maharashtra has been struggling with surging cases of Covid-19. There are speculations that a statewide lockdown may be announced by the Chief Minister anytime. Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said that CM Thackeray was concerned about the Covid-19 situation in the state. “He has requested people to behave responsibly to avoid Covid, otherwise, the government will have to resort to imposing a lockdown. People must adhere to the guidelines”, Tope was quoted as saying.
