District Collector K. Rajamani has directed officials from the labour welfare, industrial safety, and revenue departments and local bodies to inspect factories and ensure that COVID-19 precautions are followed.

If the precautions were not taken, and if there was a spread of the disease among workers, the respective industries would not be permitted to operate.
Industries in Pollachi, Sulur, Sarkar Samakulam, Kurichi and Malumichampatti were bringing workers back, many of whom were from other States.
