Advice to the public


Advice to the public (SOPs)

The generic preventive measures that include simple public health measures are to be followed to reduce the risk of COVID-19. These measures need to be observed by all; the corporation staff and the visitors:

  1. Individuals must maintain a minimum distance of 6 fit in public places as far as possible.

  1. Use of face covers/masks is mandatory.

 

  1. Practice frequent hand washing with soap (for at least 40-60 seconds) even when hands are not visibly dirty. Use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers (for at least 20 seconds) can be made wherever feasible.

  1. Respiratory etiquette is strictly followed. This involves strict practice of covering one’s mouth and nose while coughing/sneezing with a tissue/handkerchief/flexed elbow and disposing off used tissues properly.
  2. Self-monitoring of health by all and reporting any illness at the earliest to available Helplines.
  3. Spitting is strictly prohibited.
  4. We have also installed a hands-free clock in machines to avoid any unnecessary contact.
  5. We also emphasize public gatherings be kept to the minimum e.g. meetings which have been shifted to online
