Tamil Nadu govt enhances penalties for violation of mandatory safety protocols

The Tamil Nadu Government has enhanced penalties for violation of the mandatory safety protocols. It comes in the wake of the opening of almost all economic activities and intra-state travel. Meanwhile, the total caseload of COVID-19 infection in the state has surged to over four lakh 51 thousand with 5,976 people tested positive yesterday. The new cases include 992 in Chennai. The active caseload remains stable at about 51.6 thousand.

The Unlock-4 removes almost all the restrictions in Tamil Nadu to help the public to resume their economic activities. However, it also necessitates ensuring compliance of the safety protocols and the standard operating procedures so that the pandemic situation does not go out of hands. 

Keeping this in mind, the penalty for not wearing a mask while coming out has been enhanced to two hundred rupees. A government order issued yesterday says non-observance of social distancing, spitting in public places and failure to follow guidelines in containment zones by individuals will attract a fine of 500 rupees. 

Violations by commercial establishments and entry of vehicles in containment zones will attract a penalty of five thousand rupees. The increased penalty is aimed at ensuring public safety, say the authorities, as lowering the bar on safety precautions would perhaps be self-deceptive.
