The DHCBA had been conducting a daily vaccination drive from April 2021. Earlier in February, a single bench of the High Court had asked the Bar Association to formulate a plan to vaccinate the lawyers considering the rising number of Covid-19 cases among the lawyers.
DHCBA had decided to temporarily close its office within the High Court after three judges of the court tested positive for Covid-19. The High Court is functioning in a hybrid mode during the second wave of the pandemic.
Delhi government said that it would begin unlocking from Monday (31/05/2021).
