Lucknow, April 8 (TIWN) The principal chief conservator of forests (PCCF), UP, has issued new guidelines to ensure the well-being of forest staff after the report of a tiger testing positive for Corona virus in a New York zoo came in.

Based on the directives of the ministry of environment, forest and climate change, forest officials will now have to wear masks and observe proper sanitization when they enter the tiger reserves and sanctuaries.

The foresters have also been asked to monitor health of carnivores, particularly the big cats, with the help of cameras.

If any animal displays symptoms of COVID-19, then it is to be treated as per the guidelines laid down for the purpose.

In case any carnivore is found dead in the forest, then its samples must be collected and sent for tests.
