Strict Covid-19 protocols will continue to be followed during the winter session of the Parliament. Every individual, including MPs who enter the Parliament complex, will need to be doubly vaccinated otherwise carry a negative RT-PCR report. More than 90% of members of Parliament in both the houses have been completely vaccinated, said sources, adding that 95% of secretariat staff have received both the jabs.

Sitting arrangement for MPs will be maintained keeping Covid in view so lawmakers will occupy the visitor’s gallery also. Besides, it will be mandatory for members to wear a mask all the time while seated in the house. They will also be encouraged to sanitise their hands.

Entry of visitors has been completely banned for the upcoming winter session of Parliament and member staff would also not be allowed within the Parliament complex. Limited staff of the ministers would be encouraged to come to Parliament during important briefings and also during the question hour.
