Most visitors move around without face masks

Goa: With tourism in the popular Calangute-Candolim beach belt gradually picking up, stakeholders fear this could lead to a new wave of Covid-19 infections as most visitors move around without face masks and don’t follow social distancing norms.Tourists are roaming around without any masks as there are no police personnel on the beach to monitor them,” Calangute panch Saluzinho Fernandes, who is the Baga ward member, told.With tourists not being tested at the state’s borders, it has become a dangerous situation for the locals, he said.

“All the locals are wearing masks and taking precautions, but there is nobody to tell the tourists to keep the masks on,” Fernandes said.Although the Covid case count has dropped, there could be a rise in infections again, Shack Owners’ Welfare Society general secretary John Lobo said.“Tourist police should be posted on the beach and they should fine tourists moving around without masks,” Lobo said.
