As per the guidelines issued by the State Health Department , all cured patients have been asked to visit their nearest Primary Health Centre, Community Health Centre, or Family Health Centre. The COVID recovered people should have a check-up in the clinics every month. The treatment centre will be decided according to the intensity of the health issues.

Recovered patients can also seek treatment through telemedicine facility. The Deputy DMOs who are in charge of epidemic diseases are the district-level Nodal Officers of the project.
