The tourism hub of Mcleodganj, the central point that comprises the main crossing to Dolma crossing, in Kangra district has been announced as a COVID containment zone by SDM Dharamsala.

According to the reports, this area falls under ward no. 3 of the municipal corporation in Dharamsala.
The orders given by the SDM Dharamsala, Harish Gajju, state that 11 people in the area, starting from Mcleodganj’s main chowk to the Dolma clinic crossing, were found to be Corona positive.

Reportedly, in order to avoid further spread of the virus in the area, the SDM has imposed section 144 of the CrPC.
The entry and exit points of the area would be manned by the district authorities now. Permit to enter the zone would be given only after performing thermal screening of the visitors. No outsider would be allowed to enter the zone without a sensible reason.
