Raipur District Administration on Tuesday said that people going out for morning/evening walk, jogging and cycling have been appealed to stay home from July 22 to July 28. As the limits of Raipur Municipal Corporation (RMC) and Birgaon Municipal Corporation (BRMC) have been declared as containment zones, the Covid-19 advisories would be strictly implemented by the District Administration and Police Department. For the first time, grocery shops have been asked to down their shutter completely during this period, said the administration officials. People are advised to move out of their houses from 6 am to 10 am in case of emergency. Strict action would be taken against those found roaming aimlessly.
This time, the District Administration would come down heavily on the offenders keeping in view the record spike of cases in the recent days, said ADM Vinit Nandanwar.

The entire Raipur Municipal Corporation and Birgaon Municipal Corporation limits have been declared Containment Zone which means law would be strictly enforced this time, said the SSP.
