The district administration will take a decision on this. Secretary, Health Amit Negi said that in order to prevent corona infection, a guideline issued by ICMR has fixed two categories of tracing of people coming in contact with the infected person.
For your information, let us tell you that it includes 'High Risk' and 'Low Risk' categories. In case of high risk contact 14 days home quarantine will be done and sample tests will be done as per ICMR protocol. Those with low risk can do their work as before. He said that ministers and officials who attended the cabinet meeting fall under the category of low risk due to Satpal Maharaj not being in close contact. They can do their work normally.
