Actress Nidhi Subbaiah under Self-Quarantine for 2 Weeks.

Nidhi Subbaiah was in New York City attending acting courses and workshops. She was set to return home for the Ugadi. However, with the outbreak of Coronavirus, her plans went for a toss. She immediately planned to return to Bangalore when she heard of the possible suspension of flight operations.

 
The actress has stated that she was lucky enough to get a last-minute flight to Mumbai on 22ns March. She said that there were rumours about what would happen to them in Mumbai. The passengers were talking about how the authorities are going to keep the inbound passengers in quarantine facilities.
 
Subbaiah says that she was surprised by the swift action taken at the Mumbai Airport. She explained, “ Everyone was asked to queue up with their masks on. There was a separate queue for people with immediate connecting flights. A medical supervisor would check our temperature, following which we had to cross a barricade, form another queue, wherein the most disciplined fashion, nurses were questioning each passenger if they, perhaps, had symptoms of the coronavirus. If none, they would let each out with a stamp on the left hand for mandatory 14-day home quarantine, which specified the date we could step out again, and another on the right hand that said HQ.”
 
She further added that they told to check their phone for follow up calls from the authorities. She then returned home and stayed in quarantine ever since. She says, “ Thankfully, my room is on the first floor and has a separate entrance. Food is sent upon a tray and when I want to talk to my mother, we do so by maintaining a six-feet distance from each other. I understand the importance of following rules at this time. And no, it’s not about what’s going to happen to you, it’s about what might happen to others because of you. This is our time to protect society and our loved ones and help the country fight this virus, by staying indoors. Stay in, stay safe.”
