Advisory for Quarantine of Migrant Workers

This is an advisory from the Ministry of Home Affairs is in light of the recent large-scale movement of migrant labourers from cities to their place of origin. The advisory is for health officials and administrators on how to manage exposure to COVID-19 through surveillance and quarantine of workers who have stayed back, are in transit or have reached their place of residence

Migrant workers from peri-urban and rural parts of the country who migrate to large cities constitute a sizable segment of urban population across the country. During the COVID outbreak and subsequent lock-down across India, most have chosen to return home. Large congregations of migrant workers in bus stations and at state borders could expose them to COVID-19. They can also carry this infection to far flung rural areas.
