Covid-19 Test Compulsory For Patients, Attendants In Hospitals: DHSK

SRINAGAR: Director Health Services Kashmir on Thursday barred entry of patients and attendants into hospital premises without COVID-19 testing.

Director Health Services Kashmir, Dr Mushtaq A Rather, in a circular issued on Thursday, asked all Chief Medical Officers, Block Medical Officers and Medical Superintendents across the valley to ensure COVID-19 SOPs are implemented at the health facilities in their respective jurisdictions.

“Besides, they will ensure that no patient/attendant is allowed in the hospital premises unless and until RAT testing is undertaken and masks are put on the face by them properly,” the circular reads.

“However, in case of dire emergencies, need-based protocols should be followed,” it reads.
