The rising Covid cases in Bhubaneswar had now made it mandatory for people to wear masks in public places. The continuous growth of Covid positive cases, including children of 1-18 yrs in the state, has enacted several public laws.
The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued a notice mentioning the mandatory wearing of masks on public premises and avoiding public gatherings and crowds.
It has been made mandatory for the schools and college students to wear masks and suggested not to go to school if they are suffering from fever or cold and if they show any signs and symptoms.
It is strictly advisable for the children of age group 1-18 years, as they are not vaccinated. They are advised to have close contact with their friends and strangers. The chord districts and Bhubaneswar have witnessed a sudden rise in positive cases. The test centres are running short, and the BMC plans to increase the Covid Testing centres.
