In Kerala, migrant workers who have tested positive for coronavirus but are asymptomatic will be allowed to work in areas exclusively marked for them.
These revised guidelines are for projects undertaken by the state.
"If the guest workers are found positive, such workers need to be segregated. If they are asymptomatic positive then - they may work in the areas exclusively marked for the work to be done by asymptomatic workers, with all precautions," a government order issued on September 14 reads.
"They shall not mix with any other workers or officers. Their stay and food arrangements shall be done exclusively as COVID Frontline Treatment Centre (CFLTC) guidelines for asymptomatic positive," the order further reads.
