Munnar-Madurai-Thekkady next week- is it safe?

We are flying to Cochin tonight (17/12) and had the following itinerary: Cochin (1n), Munnar (2N), Madurai (2N), Thekkady (2N), Kumarakom (2N), Cochin (1N). I have arraned for a car + driver starting from Cochin

I just read some posts from a few days ago saying the border between Kerala and Tamil Nadu was closed and there was significant unrest. Is this still the case now?

We are planning to travel between Munnar and Madurai on 20 Dec and from Madurai to Periyar/Thekkady on Dec 22 and then on to Kumarakom after spending 2 nights in Thekkady.

Is it safe to travel to Munnar-Madurai-Thekkady?

Can someone PLEASE advice where exactly are the trouble areas (Kumil border only?) and what would I need to skip in my itinerary to avoid trouble (e.g. Madurai only? or also Thekkady?)

I would not like to, for example, to cross from Munnar to Madurai and then be stuck in Madurai without being able to return to Kerala for the rest of my trip!

Help please!!!!

In the present situation, better to avoid Madura - Periyar road.
