As pictures of people flouting COVID-19 guidelines at the Srinagar airport went viral on social media, officials on Sunday said strict compliance of social distancing norms by passengers and staff to minimise human contact is being ensured.
We are ensuring strict compliance of social distancing norms by passengers and staff to minimise human contact. We urge all passengers to maintain a social distance, wear mask. We are continuously striving towards improving the passenger experience, an official of the airport said.
The remarks came after pictures of passengers at the airport flouting COVID-19 SOPs and guidelines by not maintaining social distancing went viral on social media.
The official said airport authorities are taking all precautionary measures against the spread of COVID by regularly sanitising the terminal buildings and high contact surfaces.
He, however, appealed to passengers to cooperate.
