SRINAGAR: Amid fear of the 3rd wave of Covid-19 in Jammu and Kashmir the administration has set up Covid-19 testing facilities at all paid gardens and parks for every visitor in the valley.
The doctor assigned at Shalimar garden said they have done 50 rapid antigen tests for the day.
“Our protocol is if any visitor has a vaccination certificate or RTPCR within 72 hours or has an antigen test within 24 hours are only allowed to enter the garden, else we do a rapid antigen test to every visitor before their entry into the garden,” the doctor said.
Many paramedics were seen taking nasal swab samples from every visitor to conduct a rapid antigen test for Covid-19 before entering the garden.
The facilities have been made available at Shalimar garden, Nishat garden and many other paid Mughal gardens in Srinagar—(KNO)
