New Delhi/IBNS: With a spike in COVID-19 infections across the country, the Indian regulatory body Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), has notified all airports in the country for strict maintenance of COVID-19 protocols.

The body recently noted that some airports have not been implementing the basic protocols seriously.

Airport authorities and other relevant stakeholders have to ensure that everyone is following the pandemic containment protocols, including wearing masks properly – covering nose and mouth, and maintaining the required distancing norms within the airport premises, etc.

Civil aviation minister, Hardeep Singh Puri, also warned in a Twitter message that police may take punitive action against those who fail to comply with the rules.
