It said register should contain date wise information with name, address & contact number of all visitors/guests adding that prior information for such gathering should be given to the respective ward task forces/village task forces.

DC also informed that prior permission of the district administration should be sought for any such gathering and after the event the register should be submitted to the DC/ADC/SDO (C)/EAC office. The respective ward task forces/village task forces must ensure strict enforcement of the order and will be responsible for its monitoring and implementation and said any person violating the measures will be liable to be proceeded as per the provisions of Section 51 to 60 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005 besides legal action under Section 188 of the IPC and other legal provisions as applicable.

DC, Mon has also advised that N-95 masks with valved respirator not be used except when specified for use. It has been found that the use of valved respirator N-95 masks is detrimental to the measures adapted for preventing the spread of coronavirus as it does not prevent the virus from escaping out of the masks. Therefore all people are encouraged to use homemade protective mask as per advisory available on the website of MoHFW, government of India Homemade Protective (over Face & Mouth.pdf).
