Chandigarh, May 19: With a large set of new relaxations coming into force on Tuesday, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has directed the state police to ensure strict compliance with Covid safety protocols, including social distancing and wearing of masks.
The next 25-30 days would be extremely crucial for containing the spread of the coronavirus in view of the sudden opening up of the economy, as well as office/commercial activity, after a 55-day curfew, the Chief Minister warned. He directed the Punjab Police to continue with their hard work and commitment to maintain the high levels of adherence to protocols and restrictions that had helped the state keep the spread of the pandemic under check.
“We cannot let all the benefits of all the work done by you in the past 55 days, and sacrifices made by the people of Punjab, go waste due to any complacency on our part now,” the Chief Minister asserted. (UNI)
