Jharsuguda industries start functioning amid coronavirus lockdown

The Jharsuguda district authorities have allowed some large, medium and small scales industries to start operations. This decision has been taken to recover the economic losses that Odisha has suffered due to the lockdown.

District Collector Saroj Kumar Samal has published guidelines that have to be strictly followed while the industries operate. He stated that all employees would have to wear masks, and they will work in different shifts maintaining the norm of social distancing.

The district collector also said that units that want to reopen would have to accommodate transportation for their employees. Critical attention will have to be given to sanitisation at the workplace. Further employees above 50 years will not be permitted to work.

As per sources, the Odisha government has urged districts with primary industries to come up with plans that will help the poor whose livelihoods have been harmed due to the lockdown.
