The UT administration has decided to move Covid-19 testing centres from the Sector 11 market by Thursday as local traders were worried about spread of infection.

UT adviser Manoj Parida assured market associations that the centres will move to the Parade Ground in Sector 17, Exhibition Ground in Sector- 34 and the Sector 10 wide road near the Government Museum and Art Gallery.

Private laboratories will have to follow all precautions and safety measures.

The decision came at a meeting of the Sector 11 market traders and representatives of Covid testing labs on Monday, which was chaired by Parida.

The traders’ delegation was led by Diwakar Sahoonja, president, Market Welfare Association. He was accompanied by Charanjiv Singh, chairman, Chandigarh Beopar Mandal and Maheshinder Singh, councillor of ward number 1.

Last week the traders had held a demonstration to protest Covid testing in the sector.
