Nashik authorities said night curfew would be enforced in the district between 11 pm to 5 am from Monday till further orders in view of the rise in COVID- 19 cases.

Outbreak protocols will be implemented strictly and those not wearing masks will be fined Rs 1,000, while marriage functions, which seem to be a factor behind the spike, will require police permission and that too with just 100 in attendance, they said. Essential services such as hospitals, milk supply etc will not be covered in the night curfew, the officials added.

“Between February 6 and 21, the number of cases detected in Nashik was 1,731. The figure was 534 between February 16 and 20,” an official said.
