The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Saturday asked its employees with foreign travel history to go for quarantine before resuming their duties.
A circular issued by the General Administration Department (GAD) advised people to avoid contact with persons having a foreign travel history.
"The virus mainly spreads through social contacts and social gatherings and when a person comes in contact with those who are infected. Therefore, all the Administrative Secretaries/Divisional Commissioners/ Deputy Commissioners/Heads of Departments are directed to ensure the quarantine of all such officials or their relatives who have a foreign travel history since March 1, before they resume their duties," the order read.
