Palampur, April 30
The district administration today declared the entire Lambapatt village, 10 km from Palampur, as containment zone, after 15 villagers tested Covid positive on Wednesday night.
Palampur Sub Divisional Magistrate Dharmesh Ramotra said the step had been taken for the safety and security of residents under the disaster management Act.
He said despite repeated requests of the administration, residents of various villages were not following safety guidelines issued by the government like social distancing, wearing of face masks etc.
Large gatherings in marriages have been reported in the past one week from the village, which led to the spread of Covid in the area.
He said the police had been deployed in the village and in case of any violation, cases would be registered against defaulters.
He requested the villagers to visit the nearest health centre for Covid test in case of cough, cold, fever and chest infection.
The district administration has made adequate arrangements for the supply of essential goods and helpline numbers have also been issued for medical emergencies. — OC
