As Covid cases spike, UP mandates masks in public places in these 7 districts

The Uttar Pradesh government on Monday made it mandatory for people to wear face masks in public places in the capital Lucknow and six NCR districts, an official said. The increase in Kovid cases has had an impact on the districts falling under the National Capital Region (NCR). A government spokesperson said here that keeping this in mind, the government has made the use of masks mandatory in public places in Gautam Buddh Nagar, Ghaziabad, Hapur, Meerut, Bulandshahr, Baghpat and capital Lucknow.

In the last 24 hours, 65 new cases have been confirmed in Gautam Buddh Nagar, 20 in Ghaziabad and 10 in Lucknow, the official said.

In view of the improvement in the COVID-19 situation, the Uttar Pradesh government had earlier this month relaxed the wearing of face masks.
