Bengaluru, Jun 29 (IANS): The Karnataka government on Wednesday implemented a new set of guidelines as the Covid cases rose in the state.
In view of the changing scenario, all residents of an apartment have been asked undergo Covid test if more than 15 infections are reported.
Also, the new guideline has specified that there is no need to seal the school or apartment if cases of Covid infections are found. It has been advised to close down the club house, swimming pool, sports lounge and office of the apartments.
In the wake of the surge in cases, the state government is mulling to impose fine for not wearing masks at public places.
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) on Covid-19 has made this recommendation to contain the possible pandemic situation in the state. The health department is seriously considering the advice and is expected to take call over the issue in a week.
The TAC has made this recommendation in the wake of a spike in the number of Covid cases and finding the sub lineages of Omicron. During the second wave the government had imposed a Rs 250 fine on the people for not wearing masks.
