As per the state’s unlocking plan, districts falling in the ‘Level 1’ category will have the least amount of restrictions, while those in ‘Level 5’ will have lockdown-like restrictions in place. These curbs will be enforced by the Disaster Management Authority over administrative units falling under its jurisdiction.

The order is applicable from today, while local bodies will have to issue separate orders, which may be applicable from Monday.
‘Level 1’ districts will include those with less than 5% positivity rate and less than 25% occupancy of oxygen beds. For these, the state govt will regulate control over super spreaders like travel by local trains, marriages, etc.
Districts with less than 5% positivity rate, but oxygen bed occupancy between 25-40% will fall in ‘Level 2’. Here gatherings in closed public spaces and movement will be minimised.
A positivity rate between 5% to 10%, or oxygen bed occupancy of more than 40%, will be in ‘Level 3’, where Maharashtra govt will look at minimising movement post 5 pm on weekdays and weekends.
No movement will be allowed post 5 pm on weekdays and weekends without urgent or emergency reasons in ‘Level 4’ districts which show a positivity rate between 10% to 20% or oxygen bed occupancy of more than 60%.
Lastly, the state looks to allow no movement without urgent or emergency reasons in case a district has a positivity rate of more than 20% or oxygen bed occupancy of more than 75%, putting it in ‘Level 5’.
