Ahead of the President Ram Nath Kovind's visit to the state Capital on September 16, four employees of the Retreat have tested positive for Covid-19.

The four employees, including the manager of the Retreat, the summer resort of the President of India in Shimla, tested positive on Saturday. As a consequence, instructions have been issued from the Rashtrapati Bhavan that RTPCR tests of all the employees and the visitors invited during the President's visit be conducted.

Normally, there are about 50-60 employees in the Retreat, but the number swells during the President's visit as staff from Delhi also arrives here.

Shimla Deputy Commissioner Aditya Negi said all the employees would be tested in a phased manner before the President's visit.

The President is likely to address a special session of the Vidhan Sabha to mark the golden jubilee anniversary of statehood on September 17. He will arrive here at Kalyani Helipad on September 16 on a five-day programme.

Besides addressing the Vidhan Sabha session, he is scheduled to visit the Indian Audit and Accounts Academy, Yarrows and would also host "At Home" on September 19.

The President is likely to return to Delhi on September 20. To avoid any inconvenience to the general public, he would fly to Annandale from Kalyani and come to the Vidhan Sabha by road.
