Through a graded, pre-emptive and pro-active approach, the Government of India is taking several steps along with the States/ Union Territories for prevention, containment and management of COVID-19. These are being regularly reviewed and monitored at the highest level.
It is reiterated that all precautions must be taken while living with the new normal of COVID-19. It is imperative that all guidelines on physical distancing are followed at public places and workplaces; hand hygiene including frequent hand washing and respiratory hygiene is maintained; mask or face covers are used in public places; and coughing/respiratory etiquettes are followed.
The management of COVID-19 is only possible when all due care is taken by everyone without being complacent about the situation and by not taking the relaxations during the lockdown situation for granted. (eom)
