Amid the unabated surge of COVID-19 cases in Pune, the district administration has issued fresh directives to be followed in urban as well as rural areas with special emphasis on marriage functions. The directives, issued in conjunction with the guidelines issued by the Maharashtra government a few days ago as part of ‘Mission Begin Again’, lay special emphasis on management of containment zones, faster contact tracing, management of hospitals, and ensuring that the patients and family members are not exploited at private facilities.

The notification issued by Pune Collector Rajesh Deshmukh instructs citizens s well as owners of marriage halls to ensure that social distancing norms are followed during functions and that not more than 50 persons attend a marriage – inclusive of those providing services such as cooks, waiters, and musicians.ADVERTISEMENT

The notification also asked the organisers to videograph the event and provide the footage to the local police station within five days. They are also required to submit a list of attendees prior to the function.
