Maharashtra issues guidelines for reopening of cinema halls and auditoriums

The Maharashtra government has issued guidelines for the reopening of cinema halls, theatres, and auditoriums from October 22 at 50% seating capacity. The guidelines allow access only to people with Covid vaccination certificates or with the Aarogya Setu app showing their “safe status”.

The government late last month announced the reopening of cinemas and auditoriums. It has since mid-August announced gradual relaxation in Covid-19 related restrictions amid a decrease in the number of infections.
