Mysuru, Oct 22: Due to increasing inflow of tourists for the 10-day Dasara Festival in the city, Mysuru City Corporation (MCC), in an effort to control the spread of deadly COVID-19 virus, has formed mobile teams to conduct COVID-19 tests free of cost.
Also, the MCC, in association with the Health and Family Welfare Department, has started COVID testing centres at 23 different locations of the city.
MCC Health Officer Dr D G Nagaraj stated that the Corporation has taken this initiative to conduct testing on both asymptomatic and symptomatic patients, as there is an increased inflow of tourists, he added.
MCC has appealed to the public to make use of the facility. Besides, if commercial or industrial establishments, educational institutions, Government or private organisations, want their staff to undergo COVID tests, they can contact the MCC, following which the mobile teams will visit their place and conduct COVID tests for free.
