Those who want to stay in the district for three or more days have to get themselves tested 

Karwar, July 06: With the COVID virus spreading more than the expected rate, Uttara Kannada district administration has decided to take some precautionary measures to ensure the safety of the people from those coming from outside.
The order issued by Uttara Kannada district deputy commissioner Dr. Harish Kumar K makes it mandatory for all who come to the district to stay for three or more days to get tested themselves at the fever clinics on their arrival.
Uttara Kannada district has an active mechanism of community reporting and health survey which has played a major role in controlling COVID in the district which has 12 Taluks. The Panchayat task force, ASHA, and health worker keep a tab on any person who comes from outside to a house in their jurisdiction.
Though people who come from other states are kept under quarantine, there is no control over people who come from other districts. Also, there is no compulsion of testing. There have been many incidents where asymptomatic people who come from other places turn to be carriers of the virus. The new rules will thus help in controlling the virus.
“Those people who do not follow the rules would be kept under Home Quarantine for 14 days and a case booked against them,” the DC warned in the order.
