April 12, 2020

Mysore/Mysuru: With people visiting the vegetable markets on M.G. Road and at Dasara Exhibition Grounds in the heart of the city, giving a go by to social distancing and other COVID-19 regulations despite several pleas and various awareness programmes, the Police, in association with Corona Warriors, launched a special drive this morning  to ensure that both the sellers and the buyers compulsorily comply with all the lockdown regulations.

The Jurisdictional Nazarbad Police, led by Inspector G.N. Srikanth, along with about 20 local Corona Warriors, forced the people to stand in queues only at the marked boxes, thus maintaining social distance.

Also, all those not wearing face-masks were denied entry to the markets and all those with face masks were asked to compulsorily pass through the disinfectant tunnel installed at the entrance.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Cops, Corona Warriors launch drive for strict social distancing at Vegetable Markets”

  1. Bala says:

    You don’t need any special arrangement. Allow road side vegetable vendors with a minimum distance of 50 meters, with some guidelines for social distancing when multiple people come at the same time. This should be done in every locality. There will not be any crowd and much lesser chance for spreading the virus.
