In view of the spurt in Covid cases, the district administration has directed incident commanders to strictly ensure Covid-appropriate behaviour and challan people without mask.

Deputy Commissioner Mahavir Kaushik, while presiding over a meeting of the incident commanders, directed them to visit public places, especially crowded places like markets, bus stands, hospitals and government offices and ensure that masks are being used and social distancing followed. He said a person found without a mask should be challaned and also motivated to wear a mask.
