MHA extends Guidelines for Surveillance, Containment and Caution

Newdelhi:28/12/20; The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued an Order today to extend the earlier Guidelines for Surveillance to remain in force up to 31.01.2021.

While there has been a continuous decline in the active and new COVID-19 cases, there is a need to maintain surveillance, containment, and caution, keeping in view the surge in cases globally, and the emergence of a new variant of the virus in the United Kingdom (UK).

Accordingly, Containment Zones continue to be demarcated carefully; prescribed containment measures strictly followed within these zones; COVID-appropriate behavior promoted and strictly enforced; and the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) prescribed in respect of various permitted activities followed scrupulously.

Therefore, the focused approach on surveillance, containment and strict observance of the guidelines/ SOPs issued by MHA and Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MOHFW), as envisaged in the Guidelines issued on 25.11.2020; need to be enforced strictly by States and UTs.
