Valley’s travel and tourism associations organised mask distribution and awareness campaign on Tuesday.
The campaign was launched by Local NGO Care Kashmir, Travel Agents Association of Kashmir (TAAK) and other travel association associations.
During the campaign, the heads of these associations and their members distributed masks among commuters and also exhorted them to follow and implement Covid-19 SOPs to contain spread of the pandemic.
President Travel Agents Association of Kashmir Ashfaq Siddiq Dug and its Secretary General Farooq Kuthoo and other office bearers took active part in the campaign.
Dug said they were happy to see that over 90 percent of the commuters had put on masks and those who were without masks were informed about its importance and were given the masks.
“We know that this is a long drawn battle with pandemic and unless we follow guidelines in totality, containing virus will be difficult. We will organize more such mask distribution drives to ensure everyone wears it.”
