Mangaluru, July 12, 2020: Dakshina Kannada is observing a total Sunday lockdown - second of the total five - to fight the coronavirus pandemic as part of Unlock 2.0, shutting everything except essential services on Sunday.

While arterial roads wore a deserted look, the interior roads in the residential neighbourhood too witnessed less activity. Apart from relaxations to essential services and activities, marriages already fixed can be solemnised during the Sunday lockdowns.


Vegetable, fish markets, which were bustling with activity despite the Covid-19 scare, wore a deserted look. All shops, barring medical shops and those selling essential supplies especially milk parlours, remained closed.

KSRTC, private buses, autorickshaws and taxis too remained off the road. Police were deployed at Mahaveer (Pumpwell), Nandthoor, Ambedkar (Jyothi) Circles, Clock Tower, Jeppinamogaru near Town Hall and other points to ensure that citizens do not violate the clampdown. A few vehicles plying in the city were stopped by the police and those without valid reasons were sent back.

The district is also observing night curfew daily from 8 pm to 5 am, except for essential services.
