Mumbai: With Omicron cases getting detected in the two adjoining states of Karnataka and Gujarat this week, the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has introduced a set of stringent home quarantine norms.
Following are the five rules for air passengers coming to Mumbai:
- The Mumbai International Airport Ltd will send every morning a list of all Mumbai passengers landing at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, or who have visited from the ‘high risk’ and ‘at risk’ nations in the past 15 days, to the Disaster Management Unit.
- The Disaster Management Unit will relay it to the 24 administrative wards based on the passengers’ addresses and then to the Ward War Rooms (WWR) for track, test and contact tracing.
- Each person under home quarantine will get call from WWR at least five times a day to ensure the concerned person is indeed in isolation at home and following the rules
- Medical teams will be sent regularly with ambulance to see whether the passengers are complying with the rules, and check their health. After seven days in home isolation, they will ensure that the concerned passengers undergo RT-PCR tests.
- The housing societies/complexes where they live shall be informed in writing by the BMC, asking them to ensure that the passengers remain isolated at home, and no visitors are allowed
