He further added: DSGMC will provide separate rooms for heath staff, ample parking in Gurdwara premises and the safest and secure environment,”

Not only this, but the gurudwara authorizes will be providing free meals (langar) to the patients and the medics as well. In fact, the gurudwaras across the capital will provide langar to those in need affected due to the pandemic.
