The district monitoring committees formed on the directions of the Uttarakhand high court to monitor quarantine centres and Covid hospitals informed the court on Thursday that the State government is not following the orders of the court and the recommendations of the committees. People are neither wearing masks nor maintaining social distancing while the state government has not yet started mobile testing facilities in the mountainous regions. Hearing the matter, the division bench of acting chief justice Ravikumar Malimath and justice Ravindra Maithani has directed the government to implement the recommendations of the committees in Nainital, Udham Singh Nagar, Haridwar and Dehradun districts, and submit a report on this in the court by next Wednesday.

It will be recalled that advocate Dushyant Mainali, Dehradun resident Sacchidanand Dabral and Bageshwar resident advocate DK Joshi had filed separate public interest litigations in the high court seeking better facilities, proper medical treatment and assistance for those returning to Uttarakhand and elicited focus on the condition of quarantine centres and Covid hospitals in the state.
