Himachal Pradesh covid 19 medical certificate not required Himachal tourism guidelines
From now on, people traveling to Himachal Pradesh will no longer be required to present a medical certificate, Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur confirmed on Wednesday. Throughout the lockdown period following the coronavirus outbreak, people traveling in Himachal Pradesh were required to present a medical document showing they had tested negative for COVID-19. The rule is now lifted.
“A COVID-19 negative certificate is not required to enter Himachal Pradesh,” Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said today.
It comes hours after the state cabinet confirmed that online registration will not be required to enter Himachal Pradesh. The movement of interstate buses, however, will remain suspended until further notice.
Meanwhile, a Hindustan Times report suggests that the Himachal Pradesh government has also allowed bars to serve alcohol from today (Wednesday).
According to the report, bars in the state will be operated in strict accordance with standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by central and state governments, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
A notification to this effect, stating that bars statewide will follow social distancing standards, was issued by Special Secretary for Excise and Taxation Arindam Chaudhary in Shimla on Tuesday evening, according to the report.
