The central government had begun unlock 5 in September. On Tuesday, it confirmed that guidelines for unlock 5 will remain in force till 30 November. Many restrictions were eased as part of the unlock 5.
Cinema halls and multiplexes were allowed to open with 50 percent seating capacity. Though states like Karnataka and Delhi, in spite of steep rise in Covid cases opened theaters and multiplexes, many other states refused to. They will be allowed to open only in non-containment zones.

International travel for people who have been permitted by the central government will be allowed. With international flights still not fully operating, tourism will not be promoted.
