August 20, 2020: The Meghalaya government has decided to close all entry points to the state for one week every month in the next three months, starting September 2020, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said on Thursday in wake of the coronavirus pandemic.





The CM said that the move was being taken to unburden the health and frontline workers and the respective district administration engaged in intensive surveillance.





The state government said it is strategising long-term management of COVID-19 by the active involvement of legislators, community bodies and citizens. A meeting with MLAs of East Khasi Hills was due to take the plan forward.
