According to new guidelines, a total of 200 guests can now be at weddings. The decision of capacity in open spaces will be by the district magistrates and district deputy commissioners of police. Same will for the passenger count in DTC buses. There has been an increase in the seating capacity of the buses. But the entry and exit in buses will still be from separate gates. Also, masks are mandatory for both weddings and buses. 

As per Medical expert’s suggestions, large gatherings in closed spaces can turn into a super spreader event. Monitoring safety at such gatherings is difficult. For now, the government’s focus should be on crowd control. With an increase in infection due to an increase in pollution, the decision of guidelines restrictions could delay for at least two weeks.
