Mohali, April 16
The Mohali administration today announced a cap on gatherings at marriages and funerals. It said the number of people at marriages and funerals would henceforth be restricted to 20.
Special nakas are being set up around containment zones to keep a strict vigil over any unauthorised movement in or out of the zones.
Besides, police and revenue officers will conduct surprise checks at markets and crowded areas for challaning protocol violators. They will also conduct joint inspections at marriage banquets and take action against owners found violating the Covid guidelines.
To ensure that no one violates the curfew, the police will impound cars plying on roads after 9 pm. The police will also ensure that all liquor vends remain closed after 9 pm. Joint teams of civil and police officers will keep tabs over home isolation and geo-fencing breaches by Covid-19 patients.
“We have constituted additional 10 rapid response teams per subdivision for quick response to distress calls. They will ensure the distribution of Covid-19 kits and monitor the health of patients,” said an official. We would also monitor oxygen supply to prevent shortage and overpricing, he said. Additional IT teams have also been deployed for better data management of patients. — TNS
