MCD restricts public entry again after fourth employee tests Covid positive in 12 days
After one more employee of the Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday, the municipal commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey extended the restriction on public entry for two more days. According to Pandey, the campus will be sanitised on Thursday and to curb the risk of Covid-19 contagion among locals and the employees of the corporation, the public will not be allowed in MCD premises till Friday. Pandey said that the employees and officials are allowed in the MCD as their absence will cause hindrance in the working of the corporation.
It is pertinent to mention here that this is the fourth patient who was found Covid-19 positive in the corporation in the last twelve days. In view of the increasing cases of Covid-19 contagion in the corporation in the last few days, Pandey also advised people to avoid visiting the corporation unnecessarily and if possible, use online mode for the purpose of property tax submission instead of waiting to visit the MCD premises to deposit the tax.
Adopt online and telephonic options to approach officials: MCD
Considering the inconvenience being caused to the public due to the frequent closing of the MCD premises to the public because of Covid-19 cases in the corporation, the MCD issued names and contact numbers of the officials of all the major sections of MCD in order to make them accessible for public during the current crisis. In the last ten days, the MCD restricted entry of public in their premises for six days to curb the Covid-19 contagion due to which people are facing problems in approaching the corporation for various issues regarding sanitation, property tax and other tasks. Therefore, MCD issued contact numbers of the officials so that the locals can approach officials with their issues without visiting the premises.
People can also mail MCD at email@example.com for any complaints. They can also contact disaster control room number 18001804153 for any waterlogging issues during rain. Moreover, the locals can also directly call the municipal officials including chief municipal health officer, tax superintendent and senior veterinary officer among other officials to register their complaint. The contact numbers of some officials can also be found on the official website of MCD.
