The district health authorities have appealed residents to remain vigilant and follow Covid appropriate behaviour in crowded areas.
The district health department issued an advisory earlier this month saying, “People are advised to observe Covid-appropriate behaviour in public. One should wear a mask while outdoors, ensure good hygiene, and avoid overcrowded and poorly ventilated places. Respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette, i.e., covering the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing should be practiced.”
“People should follow the Covid-19 advisory. Sampling is being done free of cost in all government-run health institutions. In case of any symptoms such as fever, cough, chills, fatigue, headache, sore throat, etc., one must isolate and report to the nearest facility and should get tested for the same,” said civil surgeon Hitinder Kaur in the advisory.
