A containment zone is an area where a positive case of COVID-19 has been found or an area where high/low-risk contacts of the patient live. The premises of the zone are sealed and no person in that area is allowed to step out of their home. Grocery and other essential services are provided to them. The lanes surrounding the containment zones are also cordoned off and police are posted at all entry and exit points. Violation of these restrictions is punishable under law.

The BMC has started the Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping of the areas where the positive patients were found. The maps and statistics of the areas where maximum patients will be found will be uploaded on the BMC website. Apart from that, the BMC is also conducting a door-to-door screening of all these residents.
