Mandi, January 1

In the wake of the increasing number of Omicron variant cases in the country, the Mandi district administration has appealed to people to follow guidelines strictly to check the spread of the virus.

DC Arindam Chaudhary also issued special precautionary instructions for people coming from abroad regarding their stay in the district. He said, “People coming from abroad, especially those coming from high risk countries, should remain in home quarantine for seven days as soon as they arrive in Mandi. The details of their arrival would be provided to the head of the gram panchayat or the executive officer of the Municipal Council/Municipal Corporation concerned, who shall inform the Block Medical Officer”.

Chaudhary asked the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) to prepare a data of all such people living in home quarantine in the district. He told him to collect information about the health of people coming from abroad and test them for Covid-19 after the completion of seven days home quarantine.

“If the report of a person comes Covid positive, ensure that he or she is given the necessary treatment immediately, according to the normal protocol and send the sample for ‘genome sequencing’. Ensure Covid testing of the primary contacts of the infected person within 12 hours and keep them in home isolation,” he said.

The DC instructed Health Department officials, all SDMs, Block Development Officers, representatives of Panchayati Raj Institutions, heads of all departments and private organisations to ensure that any person yet to be vaccinated is given the dose.
