Appeal: The Ministry of Health requests the general public not to move out of your zones and not to mingle with your neighbours while visiting shops during the time specified in your movement pass. The ultimate goal of the lockdown is to keep the people from coming in contact with each other and to break the chain of further transmission of the virus in the community. It is Our Gyenkhu to use the movement pass wisely. Help us to Help You!
