Puri: Servitors of the Jagannath temple will be tested twice for coronavirus in order to ensure the prevention of coronavirus spread during Bahuda Yatra of Trinity in Puri.
The decision was taken following a detailed discussion on the steps to be taken against the COVID-19 pandemic at a meeting of Chhatis Nijog (servitors’ body).
It was also decided at the meeting that all servitors will be tested twice in two phases.
The sevayats who were tested for coronavirus will also be tested again. Only the servitors, who will test negative, will participate in the Bahuda Yatra.
