Panaji: In a modification to its earlier order, Goa government on Tuesday decided to shut down non-essential services in the state as a part of its curbs to control COVID-19.

State Chief Minister Pramod Sawant told reporters near here that keeping in mind sentiments of the people, the government has decided to shut down non-essential services including Restaurants.

Goa government had imposed the lockdown from Thursday evening till Monday morning in the state. Sawant had announced several curbs from Monday onwards for another week.

Several panchyats and municipal areas had gone for shut down (lockdown) in their own jurisdiction after government’s refusal to continue the lockdown.

Sawant on Tuesday warned the panchayats and municipalities against shutting down the essential services in the name of lockdown.

“If you shut down essential services, there will be panic amongst the people. No panchayat or municipality should shut down the shops selling essential products,” he said.

The chief minister also said that some of the panchayats were stopping people from joining their duties. “There are many people working in the hospitals and pharma companies and need to report to their duties.
