Covid-19 surge: Increase in fine, more strictness on cards in Chandigarh

Chandigarh, November 20

The UT Administration may increase penalty for violation of Covid-19 guidelines and impose some restrictions in view of a sudden spike in cases in the city.

Sources said the Administration might reconsider its decisions in consultation with the Ministry of Home Affairs on various relaxations given from time to time as the Covid cases had again started increasing in the city.

UT Adviser Manoj Parida tweeted: "Corona cases are rising alarmingly. Expect higher penalty, stricter implementation and other restrictions."

Parida also asked the participants of Chhath Puja to follow the Covid protocol, as the permission given to perform the rituals was conditional.

Despite strict warnings, many visitors were found violating the social-distancing norm and also not wearing masks inside the Rock Garden which was reopened to the public yesterday after nearly eight months of closure.
