Coronavirus outbreak: Chennai takes measures amid nationwide lockdown

AIR
In Chennai, chartered buses have been arranged for the transportation of the staff involved in essential services.

The Chennai Corporation, the health department, water supply, power and other public service agencies have chartered buses from the state-run Metro Transport Corporation to facilitate the travel of essential services staff. The Metro Transport Corporation is running special buses for the transport of staff working in Government Offices in Chennai.

Also, the Chennai Corporation has imposed conditions for delivery of goods by retailers and e-commerce firms due to the prevailing Covid-19 situation.


It has been mandated that the staff should wear head-cover, masks and gloves while handling goods in go-downs. Delivery by hand has been forbidden and the articles have to be placed at a safe distance from the customers who have to take them by themselves.

Only essential items like dry groceries and vegetables are being permitted for door delivery. Delivery of cooked food by agencies like ‘Swiggy’, ‘Zomato’ and ‘Ubereats’ is banned.
