However, a recent update from the State Government reports that people from the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Maharashtra and Gujarat are prohibited from entering Karnataka, till the end of this lockdown, on May 31st!
Karnataka's Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa addressed the media and stated the above rule. He also mentioned that all the shops will be allowed to open in the state from May 19th and all trains within the state can begin to run! Normalcy will return to Karnataka, except in the Containment Zones but the State will continue to remain under lockdown on all Sundays! The above decision was taken after the CM's meeting with his ministers and government officers after the Central Government gave the state governments power to decide upon the course of action within their states!
