The Govt. of Rajasthan on Thursday announced that all people arriving from Maharashtra and Kerala will need to show a negative Covid-19 (RT-PCR) test report on arrival to enter into the state.
The decision comes after a review meeting chaired by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot at his residence today. It was also decided that an awareness campaign will be run from March for the Covid-19 vaccination.
“In a review meeting on Covid-19 infection and vaccination at the residence, it has been decided that it will be mandatory for people coming to Rajasthan from Maharashtra and Kerala to bring a negative report of the corona RT-PCR test,” Ashok Gehlot tweeted.
