Amid the fear of new covid variant Omicron and newly imposed night curfews, people in Bengaluru are preparing to celebrate New Year's Eve in the new normal way. Bengalureans are set to celebrate the day with house parties, or quick trips to farmhouses and resorts on the outskirts of the city or neighbouring districts and States.

The Karnataka government revised night curfew restrictions in Bengaluru on Thursday. “The prohibitory order within the limits of Bengaluru City Commissionerate shall remain with revised timings, that is, from 6 pm on December 31 to 5 am on January 1, 2022,” read the order by the state administration.

The order added that in Bengaluru, gatherings of five or more people in public places for New Year festivities in any form are prohibited.

The in-house festivities in residential complexes and private clubs, on the other hand, maybe held for their members without the need to organise any special activities, says the order.

"No special DJ, events, or concerts shall be organised in the city by hotels, malls, restaurants, clubs or any other similar establishment." "They may, however, carry on their regular business operations in accordance with COVID-19 protocols," the order further added.

Meanwhile, the state on Wednesday (December 29) reported five new cases of Omicron, confirmed Karnataka's Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar.

Out of these five cases, one came from the United States, another from the United States via Qatar, one had returned from Dubai, one from Ghana via Doha, and one had arrived from Mumbai.
