Chamba, May 12
Deputy Commissioner DC Rana today directed the SDMs of Bharmour, Tissa and Salooni subdivisions of Chamba district to ensure that shepherds and other livestock rearers coming from outside to these areas should be asked to move their alpine pastures directly after completing the process of their sampling.
The Deputy Commissioner said such effective prevention measures were necessary to contain the increasing infection of Covid-19 in the district.
He stressed that a 14-day home quarantine should be ensured to employees and labourers coming from outside areas in various power projects of the district for which the project management would be responsible for the violation of Covid norms.
The Deputy Commissioner said it was generally seen that these people were also getting mingling with local people, due to which the risk of spreading the infection was increasing.
In case of violation, strict action would be taken under the Disaster Management Act and the responsibility of the project management would be fixed individually, the DC further stated.
