In the wake of uptick in Covid-19 cases in other states, wearing mask has been made mandatory in public places, workplaces and while traveling on public transport. I urge all eligible to get their precaution dose and stay vigilant by adhering to Covid’s appropriate behavior.
Excerpts from the official Order:
Whereas, the Covid-19 restrictions were lifted in the State since 28th Feb 2022 and the activities were opened to Public, in view of the daily low incidence of Covid cases. Currently, an upsurge of cases is observed in the States of Delhi, Haryana & Tamil Nadu.
And slight increase in daily incidence of covid cases is observed in Karnataka too.
Whereas, the above-mentioned States have re-introduced the mask mandate with a penalty for non-compliance. As a proactive step to minimize the upsurge of covid cases, this order is being issued as per the recommendations of the State Covid 19 Technical Advisory Committee.
The wearing of face covering / mask by public is compulsory in all public places, in work places and during transport.
Similarly spitting in public places will be punishable with a fine, as may be prescribed in accordance with its laws, rules or regulations by the local authorities.
Further, individuals must maintain social distance of 2 feet – in public places.
