Odisha govt's fresh guidelines to check rise in COVID-19 cases
Odisha government on Sunday, however, issued guidelines to ensure strict implementation of COVID-19 safety protocols in view of a fresh spike in the number of COVID-19 cases in some states, fear of new variants, and complacency in people for observing the basic safety protocols.

District and Police authorities were advised to check and ensure strict observance of COVID-l9 safety protocols such as the mandatory wearing of masks, maintaining physical distancing in all public places including workplaces and educational institutions.
