The government has asked citizens not to panic buy or hoard essentials as grocery shops shall remain open throughout the day. Also, restaurants will continue to cook and deliver, and industries will be permitted to operate within their premises. But such industries need to arrange transportation for staff. Of course all healthcare facilities will remain open during this time.

Those tourists who are coming into Goa during this time, will be permitted to stay in their hotels, but they cannot go out. From the evening of April 29 to the morning of May 3, such tourists must remain within the confines of their accommodation.
