The registrar asked staffers with a travel history to affected areas/countries or having fever, sore-throat, cough, runny nose or difficulty in breathing, to refrain from attending office and avail leave.
Staff members were also asked not to crowd at any particular place in the court premises, except where their presence was required, Jain added.
