As the second wave of the Covid19 pandemic in the country continues to slow down, many states have eased event restrictions leading to a sigh of relief for the industry. EVENTFAQS Media reached out to industry stakeholders to get their view of the current situation in their state and events happening there.
In this part of the series, we asked Sagar Pingali, Managing Director, Catpro Events and Entertainment, about the level of unlocking, SOPs and events happening in Hyderabad.
Pingali said, “Hyderabad is in complete unlock. The CM has declared the status as similar to before the lockdown and everything can go back to normal. The only rules are that basic Covid safety rules and regulations should be followed like wearing mask, washing hands, maintaining social distance, etc.”
“As it stands, there are no major events planned for the next month. Most of the current large events/gatherings happening are social/religious like weddings. However, we also have a couple of corporate (internal) conferences and initiatives coming up over the next couple of months. But nothing large or significant as most of the clients are still apprehensive about the predicted third wave and about how the situation could change over the next few weeks. Right now, it’s open but more a state of ‘wait and watch’.
The Telangana ‘unlock’ Government Order issued on 19 June 2021 read, “Keeping in view, the decrease in number of corona cases and low positivity percentage in the state of Telangana, it has been decided to allow all the activities that were permitted prior to the introduction of lockdown in the state in supersession of all earlier orders related to lockdown, with immediate effect.”
EVENTFAQS Media reached out to industry stakeholders from across India to get an update on the level of unlock and SOPs, events happening in the state/city and more.
