As the COVID-19 cases see a surge in the country, an idol of Goddess Durga in a temple in Uttar Pradesh’s Etah district is seen wearing a mask. The priests are reportedly distributing masks as ‘prasad’ to devotees during the ongoing Chaitra Navaratri.

Pandit Manoj Sharma, a priest at the temple said that they decided to put a mask on the idol of the goddess to send out a strong message.

He further informed that they have been distributing face masks as ‘prasad’ to promote COVID-appropriate behavior among the devotees and they have even made proper arrangements for hand sanitizer and also put up Covid-19 advisory at several places on the temple premises to ensure devotees do not pose a danger to public health and behave as responsible citizens.

The priest further clarified that the temple management is also ensuring that all Covid guidelines are adhered to and not more than five devotees are allowed into the temple at a time.
