Mohali (Face2News)

In wake of acute spike in COVID-19 cases in past two days, District Administration is deliberating over imposing stricter weekend restrictions, informed Girish Dayalan, Deputy Commissioner SAS Nagar.

Directing the entire safety protocol enforcement team including the officers of Municipal Corporation Mohali, Executive Officers of Municipal Councils as well as the Sub-Divisional Magistrates to activate teams for stricter enforcing of social distancing and wearing of masks in critical crowding locations such as market areas, malls, restaurants/eateries, public offices, banks, etc. with immediate effect, Deputy Commissioner said that with the increased transportation/commuting relaxations in the ongoing ‘Unlock’ phase, surge was expected and adequate measures are being taken.

Ruling out the feeling that safety protocol enforcement is lax in Mohali, Girish Dayalan said that “the cases that have surfaced are not due to people coming on their own to flu centres/hospitals for checking; rather administration is going for extensive sampling of target groups( contacts of active cases, travel history) which has led to surfacing of positive cases.” We have not lowered the guard and the situation is under control, said he.

He also informed that Federal Behda in Dera Bassi has been made the containment zone (over fifteen cases), village Majat charcoal factory and Peermuchalla is micro containment zone( more than five but less than fifteen) and Sector 66 Mohali is declared as the Cluster(more than two but less than fifteen cases).
