Dimapur, May 18: The Duncan Bosti Council on Tuesday made its stance clear that whoever is coming back from outside the state and enters Duncan, irrespective of the zones, will have to mandatorily stay home quarantined for 14 days beyond the institutionalized quarantine mandated by the government on arrival.
Briefing the media persons, Chairman of the Council, Yangertoshi said that it is this time when thousands of people are coming back home that the virus can make its way in the state, and therefore, the resolution has been taken that the quarantine of the returnees of Duncan Bosti would be managed by the council.
