  • In case a voter has a temperature higher than 37.5 degrees Celsius or displaying symptoms of Covid-19, the queuing clerk will immediately inform the presiding officer and the affected voter will be advised to seek medical attention.  

The requirement for an ambulance on standby in every ward, temperature checks before entry into polling station and voters having their own pens are Election Day measures to curb Covid-19.
