Omicron Scare | Authorities may Impose Strict Weekend Lockdown

Amidst the resurgence of COVID-19 positive cases and detection of Omicron cases across the Jammu and Kashmir, authorities on Wednesday said they are monitoring the situation closely and if the need arises a ‘strict weekend lockdown’ will be imposed in the district.

Srinagar being a hub, witnesses the movement of a huge population every day, however, the district administration is monitoring the situation keenly and will not let the situation slip out of hands.

“Lockdown always decides by State Executive Committee (SEC). Earlier when the situation turned out disastrous, the district administration recommended SEC impose weekend lockdown and if there will be a continuous surge in positive cases we will then again recommend for another weekend lockdown in the district to bring positive cases down”, the official said.
