Older employees, pregnant employees and those with underlying medical conditions would not be assigned work involving direct dealing with the general public, according to a government order issued in Srinagar.

The government also ordered the suspension of routine issuing of visitor/temporary passes, adding that only those visitors with proper permission from the official they want to meet should be allowed after being screened.

 

Biometric attendance would continue to remain suspended until further orders, the order added, and asked all departments to follow the preventive measures prescribed by the Union health ministry.

There are 3,324 coronavirus cases in Jammu and Kashmir. Fatalities due to the disease in the Union Territory stood at 39.
