The District Magistrate Mr. Girish Dayalan today ordered that keeping in view the arrival of Indian Nationals from foreign countries in the District through Delhi Airport/Mohali Airport/Sri Guru Ramdas International Airport, owing to the suspension of flights, the Additional Chief Administrator, GMADA has identified private hotels/motels in the district where these people would be kept under quarantine. The hotel owners would charge these people for rent and food as per the rates fixed by the office of District Magistrate.

Furthermore, a nodal officer has been appointed for the above said purpose. He would take measures to keep persons arriving in the district from foreign countries via the district airport, under institutional quarantine for 14 days in the hotels. Help desks would be formed at the airport itself and adequate staff would be deployed and inform the people arriving from foreign countries about the hotels fixed on the payment basis for quarantine purposes. The passengers would be sent to the hotels of their choice as per their consent based on their capacity to pay.

The passengers from the other districts arriving in this district via local airport, would be sent to their respective districts by coordinating with the RTA and the District wise list would be sent to the Deputy Commissioners of the concerned districts.

The passengers belonging to this district on arriving here via Delhi Airport, would report to the Palm Resort in Derabassi where they would be informed about the hotels by the help desks. Those passengers coming to this district through Amritsar Airport would report at the Radha Soami Satsang Bhawan, Sector-76, in Mohali. Here also the help desks would guide them about the hotels where they would be kept under institutional quarantine.

Those passengers who would be unable to pay the rent of the hotels, would be kept at the quarantine facility at Chandigarh University Gharuan or other appropriate quarantine facility. The stay here would be free but the meal expenses would be paid by the passenger quarantined.

The everyday data of the passengers arriving in the district from the three airports, would be prepared and the details of the hotel where they would be quarantined, would be sent to the covid cell set up at State/District level.
