The decision has been taken to keep a check on the spread of coronavirus from national capital where the cases have crossed 1-lakh mark.
The lockdown on weekends will be implemented in the crowded areas and the markets and offices will remain closed on these days.
However, the banks will remain open and people with e-pass can travel across the border. During the lockdown, locals can use their private vehicles but only for essential purposes and medical emergencies.
Apart from government offices, shopping malls and restaurants will also not operate during this weekend lockdown in Uttar Pradesh. Moreover, banks and medical facilities can operate as these are considered a part of essential activities.
The development comes as state’s Gautam Buddh Nagar on Friday reported one more death linked to COVID-19, while 84 more people were found to be infected with the novel coronavirus.
The death toll in the district reached 38 and the number of people who have so far tested positive for COVID-19 rose to 3,940.
