Tripura govt issues guidelines for travellers from other states


Taking note of the spike in coronavirus cases in some parts of the country, the Biplab Deb government has issued fresh guidelines, making COVID-19 tests mandatory for people wanting to enter Tripura from any state that has more than one district with over five percent positivity rate. In an official order, the government said that people coming from Kerala, Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Manipur, West Bengal, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland would have to undergo a sample test at Tripura’s entry point if they fail to produce a COVID-negative report not older than 48 hours.

“Negative test report for COVID-19 done by RTPCR or True NAT or CBNAAT, 48 hours prior to the journey, is required for entry into the state through airport, railway stations from those states of the country where more than one district have positivity rate of 5 per cent or more, as on 26.10.2021,” a notification issued on Friday by Directorate of Family Welfare and Preventive Medicines said.
