The advent of the reign of coronavirus meant the suspension of all temple activities indefinitely. However, most often than not, the big temple festivals have always been scheduled to be conducted in the month of February. As the days advance, authorities, as well as devotees, had been pressing the government to allow the conduction of these sacred festivals, albeit on a smaller scale and by abiding by COVID-19-related protocol. 

Alongside suspending ordinary services and pujas, the use of guest houses had also been put a stop on. However, now the government has allowed for the guesthouses to be used by devotees again as long as all of them adhere to the guidelines and ensure that they do not aid the spread of the virus in any way. 

Interestingly, cinema halls received the green light to entertain a full house much before temples were allowed to resume the conduction of their major annual festivals. As more people began pointing out that if the cinema halls could afford to have a full house then temples should also be allowed to let their devotees in, in larger numbers, eventually for festivals. Thus, the government relaxed its policies regarding the suspension of activities in temples.
