Amid surge in COVID-19 cases, the State government on Saturday said that every traveller will have to carry a Covid-19 negative certificate, and if anyone is found exhibiting symptoms of the disease at the entry point might have to undergo the test again.
The state today released its revised Covid-19 protocols for entry making online registration on the state-operated portal mandatory for entrants.
Principal Secretary of Health, Sampath Kumar said all entrants tested by RT-PCR at the entry point should go into home quarantine or paid quarantine till the test results are declared. He said international travellers should be under home quarantine for 7 days from the date of their arrival regardless of their test results.
Additionally, all entrants will have to monitor their health for a period of 10 days from the day of entry into Meghalaya, and inform the administration in case they feel unwell or develop symptoms of the disease.
Iterating that masks should be worn at all time in public places, Kumar further asked people to continue maintaining social distance, while also practising hand hygiene.
