Mangalore: Most of college hostels has become Containment zones

The health department has taken action against establishments that have closed without informing officials of the closure. A containment zone is defined as any educational institution that reports five or more cases of COVID-19. If no positive cases are detected after a week, it is designated as a “de-containment zone.” A college near Kodialbail switched to online classes after reporting more than five COVID-19 incidents a few days ago.

College hostels, followed by institutions, make up the majority of the confinement zones. If the health department discovers a hostel with inmates infected with COVID-19 from several institutions, they label the hostel a containment zone rather than their schools or colleges. Similarly, they have urged the state department of education to postpone on-campus classes if there’s a concentration of students in a single class.
