Netaji Subhash National Institute of Sports (NSNIS) Patiala’s catering manager, who traveled from Lucknow, UP earlier this week, has tested positive for coronavirus and has been shifted to a COVID Centre as per protocol.

He, along with two other officials, had reported back to NIS Patiala after availing leave and were quarantined as per guidelines of local health department and tested for COVID-19 upon arrival, SAI said in a statement on Tuesday.

While the other two employees tested negative, the catering manager’s test results came out positive for the virus and he has thus been shifted to a COVID Centre for better treatment and as a precautionary measure.
