It also requested to all the citizens and traders to open their shops by taking all necessary precautions while maintaining social distance, sanitization, avoid overcrowding and unnecessary movement, etc for safety of every one.

Earlier on Wednesday, the KCC urged the traders to shut down their shops and offices for the next three days and remain under quarantine Following detection of 15 more people in Guwahati’s Fancy Bazar area. The areas were TRP Road, Kedar Road, MG Road,  HB Road, Chamber Road, MS Road, MM Road , SRCB Road and all internal roads connected to these areas. 

“Thank you all for maintaining 3 days of home quarantine in Fancy Bazar area by entire business community and residents of the area to ensure safety of everyone.
