Srinagar : After assessing covid situation in the Union Territory, the government has classified all districts, except Kishtwar, of J&K as orange zones.

The classification came after the State Executive Committee's detailed review of the Covid-19 spread in UT.

"The categorisation of districts into red, orange and green zones will be followed for the purpose of implementation of permitted activities in the respective districts as per a separate order, to be issued by the State Executive Committee (SEC)," reads an order issued by the Chief Secretary, J&K and Chairman, State Executive Committee, BVR Subrahmanyam on Thursday.

It considered an overall assessment of the situation alongside trends like the recent spike in new cases.

This is in view of the continuous movement of people travelling to Jammu and Kashmir, and between provinces or districts with risk of further spread and the risk perception of health department in each district and the need to control the further spread of Covid-19.

Accordingly, the government has declared Lakhanpur Containment zone on the NH-44 with a buffer of 500 metre radius and Jawahar tunnel area, on either side as Red Zone while Jammu division's Kishtwar district has been kept in the category of Green Zone unlike rest of the districts of the division.

The order further said that this classification will be reviewed periodically and any further modifications will be made by the government of Jammu and Kashmir.
