People of Nalbari and Golaghat districts will have a big sigh of relief after Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma today announced that the two districts will no longer remain Red zone districts and will be become Green.

Sarma, who visited Nalbari to take stock of the situation arising out of the spread of the pandemic, said since there have been no new positive cases in the two districts in the past 28 days, they will now be clubbed as green districts.

“There have been no fresh positive COVID-19 cases in Nalbari and Golaghat districts in the past 28 days. So we will remove restrictions such as buffer and containment zones as per Health ministry protocol. Nalbari and Golaghat will become green zone districts,” the Assam Health Minister announced, adding that an official order will be issued by the Government soon.

However, people in both districts will have to maintain all lockdown rules as applicable across the country.

“I appeal people to take all precautions and use face masks and maintain social and physical distancing,” Himanta Biswa Sarma further said.

Nalbari and Golaghat along with Dhubri, Goalpara and Morigaon were grouped as red zone districts by the Union Health Ministry earlier this month.

There will now be four red zone districts in Assam – Dhubri, Goalpara, Morigaon, and Bongaigaon where four people tested positive today.
