Rise OF Covid Cases In Odisha : ‘No Mask, No Goods’ in Capital City

Khordha continues to remain the COVID hotspot in Odisha due to which the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) further tightened virus control guidelines and issued a No Mask, No Goods’ order for the public. Issuing a fresh advisory to all the grocery stores, the BMC has directed them to put the poster of ‘No Mask, No Goods’ outside the stores.

According to the reports, business establishments like shopping malls/shops/store owners shall not allow any staff or customers without face masks/face cover inside their premises. They shall also put appropriate signage “NO MASK NO ENTRY / NO MASK NO GOODS” at the entry point of their premises for information of all concerned.

Before, the BMC brought back the ‘No mask no fuel’ mandate for vehicle owners under its jurisdiction. The civic body has ordered the fuel refilling stations to not sell fuel to those customers who turn up without wearing a face mask/face cover appropriately. The fuel station owners have also been directed to put proper signage in the appropriate place for all information. Apart from the gas stations, the BMC also issued an advisory for other traders and office goers in the city.

Here are some of the points-

  1. All citizens residing within the BMC area as well as outside citizens coming to the BMC area or present in the BMC area are requested to wear face masks/face covers appropriately while in public places.
  2. Appropriate use of a face mask/face cover means that it should cover the mouth and nose adequately.
  3. The owners of business establishments like shopping malls/shops/store owners shall not allow any staff or customers without face masks/face covers inside their premises. They shall also put appropriate signage “NO MASK NO ENTRY / NO MASK NO GOODS” at the entry point of their premises for information of all concerned.
  4. The CEO/Managers/Head of the offices of Govt as well as Private offices shall ensure that their employees are wearing face masks/face covers at all times while in their office’s premises except when they are taking tiffin/lunches during lunchtime.
  5. The above advisory is in addition to adherence to other COVID appropriate behaviour like maintenance of social distancing, maintaining hand hygiene, adopting appropriate coughing/sneezing practices and no spitting in public places etc.
