wearing a new look. This had been facilitated by Mr.Kalyan Krishnamurthy through social worker Ms.Shasthri. Pointing out that a sum of rupees ten lakh had gone into the renovation of the Centre, she observed that it would be highly beneficial to the people of Coonoor.
Adverting to the situation on the Covid front,the Collector said that.it was under control but there was no let up in the efforts of the administration to enhance awareness about the threat it posed.
Though 100 percent of the plantation labourers have been vaccinated, they cannot afford to be complacent as workers from outside have started returning.The estate managements concerned have to ensure that they also have been vaccinated or they should be quarantined for 14 days.
