The order would come into effect after one week, Madurai district collector Aneesh Sekhar told news agency ANI. He also said that one week's time has been given to people to get at least one dose of the vaccine against COVID-19.
Those who fail to get at least one dose will not be allowed to enter public places like shopping malls, hotels and other commercial establishments, Sekhar also said.
