“People need to be more vigilant during festivals to prevent the spread of the virus. By following the guidelines and getting vaccinated, Covid can be kept at bay.

Meanwhile, the district authorities are also checking and conducting inspections of food items.

The Food Safety Department and teams of health workers have been conducting frequent checks. Food shops, sweet shops, milk dairies, grocery shops and other places like cold stores, food manufacturing factories et al are being checked. Shopkeepers have been instructed to keep sweets, fruits, vegetables and juices et al covered.

The Deputy Commissioner has also asked shopkeepers to ensure compliance with the rule of no mask-no service.

The district is also running an IEC campaign, going door-to-door to make people aware of Covid norms and motivating them to join the vaccination drive.
