The nationwide lockdown to fight coronavirus has been extended till June 30, but malls, restaurants and religious places can reopen from June 8 except in containment zones, or areas sealed because of a large number of virus cases.

Hotels and restaurants will also be allowed from June 8 but cinemas, schools and international flights will be reopened only after an assessment, the home ministry said in new guidelines on Saturday ordering phased re-opening of areas outside containment zones.

Night curfew timings in lockdown5 will be changed to 9 pm-5 am from the existing 7 pm-7 am.

There will be no restrictions on the movement of people or goods within states and between states. But states can decide whether to regulate movement based on their assessment.

"The current phase of re-opening, Unlock 1, will have an economic focus," said the government, stating that the guidelines are based on extensive consultations held with States and Union Territories.

All activities banned earlier will be opened up in areas outside Containment Zones in a phased manner, with SOPs to be prescribed by the Health Ministry.

A decision on reopening schools and colleges will be taken in July, after consultations with states, parents and other stake-holders.

International flights, metros, cinemas, gyms, swimming pools, entertainment parks, theatres and bars will also be allowed only after more consultations, "based on the assessment of the situation", said the ministry.
