Residents of this Alwarpet apartment take several precautions to prevent the virus spread

Residents of an apartment complex in Alwarpet have started taking several precautions, after one resident recently tested virus-positive here.

The complex houses over 150 families, living in different blocks.

Residents say the virus-positive man is under home-quarantine and their house alone is barricaded.

Says a resident of this complex, “Corporation staff supply all essentials to the virus-positive person’s house and the garbage from their house is collected separately. The civic workers also fumigate our complex daily.”

The temperatures of the residents are also checked by the Corporation frequently. And they are provided with kabasura kudineer. “We are also taking zinc/vitamin tablets and homemade herbal concoctions to boost our immunity.”

Masks has been made compulsory even inside the complex. Newspapers and other essentials are delivered outside the gate and the residents go to the gate to pick them.

Also, earlier, children were allowed to play cricket in our campus. But now all that also has been stopped, she says.

To help seniors at their complex, the apartment is allowing a few domestic helpers. “However, their temperatures are checked daily and the helpers are asked to maintain proper hygiene.”

She says, “Our resident’s association has also sent a note instructing everyone to undergo COVID-19 testing if we have returned from virus affected states/districts in the recent past.”

“Also, if residents want to go out to take care of their virus affected family members living in the neighbourhood, they are asked to inform the association.”

If that’s the case, she says one who goes out has to take 28 days quarantine and test virus-negative before returning to the complex, according to the instruction from their association.
