Arrangements for thermal screening of returning migrants should be made in the districts they are returning to so that the screening load is lightened in the border areas of Uttarakhand. Personnel should be deployed to regularly monitor those being home quarantined. Chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat issued these directions while chairing a meeting with officials on Saturday regarding effective control of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Stating that a large number of Uttarakhandis are returning home from various states, Rawat said that regular monitoring of their place of quarantine should be ensured. Personnel should be deployed for this purpose. The mandatory requirement for social distancing and wearing of masks should be implemented strictly and the availability of masks with people should also be ensured. Those who do not wear masks or spit in the public should be penalised. Rawat further said that if migrant workers from other states present in Uttarakhand want to return to their native states, arrangements should be made to send them in the vehicles coming from the states concerned. The CM directed officials to ensure compilation of complete data of those returning to Uttarakhand, including where they are quarantined. This will enable tracing of others in case any of them is found positive for Covid-19. The police should facilitate the sending of SMS for alerts to the people concerned, said Rawat. He also stressed on the need for further strengthening the state control room and IT sector. Referring to those being quarantined in rural areas, he said that the Gram Pradhans are doing good work and cooperating fully. Chief secretary Utpal Kumar Singh, additional chief secretary Om Prakash, DGP Anil Kumar Raturi, secretaries Amit Singh Negi, Nitesh Jha, Shailesh Bagauli and the director general of health, Dr Amita Upreti among others were also present in the meeting.
