Solan, December 22

SDM, Nalagarh, today ordered the closure of Bhojia Dental College near Baddi for five days till December 26 after five Covid cases were reported in the college.

The premises will be sanitised and contact tracing will be undertaken to prevent its further spread. Two teachers had tested positive at Mohali two days ago and they are under home quarantine. Three students tested positive today in the Rapid Antigen Tests conducted by the health staff here, informed health officials.

Keeping in view the advisory of the Centre to monitor hotspots, the local administration has begun rigorous surveillance of international travellers in the Baddi-Barotiwala-Nalagarh hub. With several multinational companies operating in this hub, international travellers often visit the place. This could pose a threat to the residents if not monitored.

SDM Mahendra Pal directed the Deputy Director, Industries, to inform industrial establishments for mandatory surveillance of international passengers and their quarantine.

Block Medical officer, Nalagarh, has been directed to coordinate with the panchayat pradhans, up pradhans, panchayat secretaries as well as the executive officers of civic bodies at Nalagarh and Baddi for their RT-PCR testing.
