Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has directed that waste masks and gloves in general households should be kept in paper bags for a minimum of 72 hours prior to disposal as dry general solid waste after cutting them to prevent reuse. It also directed commercial establishments, malls, and offices to follow the same procedure with discarded PPE from the general public.
