IMC workers required to wear masks, gloves

ITANAGAR, Apr 18: The Itanagar Municipal Corporation (IMC) has made it compulsory for all its workers to wear masks and gloves and use sanitizers.
Addressing IMC workers here on Saturday, IMC Joint CEO Tadar Tarang urged them to strictly follow the recent order issued by the state government, making it compulsory to wear masks.
“All IMC workers should strictly follow the order. They should also maintain physical distance while performing their duties,” Tarang said.
He informed that the workers have been provided with masks, gloves and sanitizers, and have been taught how to use them.
The IMC has around 600 staffers, including NGO members, who are engaged in collecting garbage from the colonies and sectors, Tarang said.
“There are 42 trucks to collect garbage, but a few have developed mechanical snags. As the garages are closed, we are finding it hard to repair them. Also, some of the workers cannot come out due to strict quarantine measures imposed by their landlords,” he said.
The joint CEO also informed that the IMC is regularly carrying out sanitization drives in various parts of the capital region.
“At the instruction of the authorities, we have carried out sanitization drives in Doimukh and Sagalee too,” he said.
