Admin sets up COVID testing facilities at all paid gardens, parks
Srinagar: Amid the fears of the possibility of 3rd wave of Covid-19, the administration has set up Covid testing facilities at all paid gardens and parks in the Valley.
Local news agency KNO reported that a doctor assigned at Shalimar garden said they have done 50 rapid antigen tests for the day.
“Our protocol only those visitors with a vaccination certificate or RTPCR test not more than 72 hours old or an antigen test (RAT) conducted in past 24 hours only are to be allowed to enter the garden; else we do a rapid antigen test to every visitor before their entry into the garden,” the doctor said.
Many paramedics were seen taking nasal swab samples from the visitors to conduct a rapid antigen test for Covid-19 before allowing them to enter the garden.
The facilities have been made available at Shalimar garden, Nishat garden and many other paid Mughal gardens in Srinagar. (KNO)
