Tehsildars, as Incident Commanders, will ensure it by getting information from COVID Management Committee or from any other sources.
Even for emergency travel, government officials, including contractual employees in Rayagada district, also need prior permission from the Rayagada Collector processed through PD, DRDA-cum-COVID Nodal Officer via e-mail only.
Earlier, the Ganjam district collector Vijay Amruta Kulange ordered the sealing of Ganjam-Khurda border to prevent movement of persons between the districts.
