Maharashtra: Guidelines for small containment zones issued | Mumbai News – Times of India


MUMBAI: Maharashtra government issued guidelines for management of micro-containment zones and hefty penalties were prescribed. An order by chief secretary Sitaram Kunte said cooperative housing societies having more than five Covid cases will be declared as micro-containment zones.
Outside maids and drivers may be disallowed by local authorities. Private security services may be allowed to commute in and out of the zone, but should wear PPE given by the society while being on the premises. They may interact with delivery persons in PPE only.
Boards stating that the society is an MCZ should be placed at all gates. Strict perimeter control has to be observed and household essentials should be delivered though e-deliveries. A fine of Rs10,000 has been prescribed for violations.
Officials said many corporations and local bodies have MCZ management plans in force, but these guidelines were to standardise the response in the state. The order said a locality can be denotified as an MCZ by local authorities after 10 days of being notified subject to no new cases being found positive in the last five days.
