Two booths were made with hardboards in the middle of the field. The Health Department's awareness banner was hung at the north end of the field.

Besides, the ground floor and 1st floor of the new academic building of the college have been cleared to help coronavirus patients. These have been done with the help of employees of Titumar College and the Oval group.
