Using powers under the Uttarakhand Epidemic Diseases, Covid-19 Regulations 2020 Epidemic Diseases Act 1897, the hotel has been locked down with immediate effect.

Further, on the directions of the DM, supply of essential food items was made to the Forest Research Institute campus which is under lockdown.
