Those entering Rajasthan requires a negative test report

Posted on March 25, 2021 by

The government of Rajasthan has now made it mandatory for the people entering the state to carry a negative test report. Such a report is essentially required for the ones entering from Haryana and shall not be more than 72 hours old. This is because, positive cases are on a rise in the state of Haryana, much unlike other states in the country.
Few days back, the Rajasthan police had set up a camp at the Shahjahanpur border to conduct random checks on the vehicles. This is specifically intended to conduct on the vehicles with HR-26 registrations. These are the ones that have been registered in Gurugram.
The people that the police stopped were asked to produce a negative Covid test report. An RT-PCR test has been made compulsory now that should be conducted before 72 hours of the journey. Many visitors had to go back and the people who agreed were made to undergo the test at the checkpoint. The authorities also noted down their details. On the other side, the farmers who were protesting at the Shahjahanpur site were forced to discontinue with their action. A senior official from the health department of Rajasthan stated that last week, the government had issued an order for the visitors from six states including Haryana to provide a negative test report while entering the state.
The official exclaimed, “We have started to check people at various entry points. A special focus is on the districts adjoining Rajasthan. We are also keeping close tabs on the rising Covid cases in the neighbouring states. For those using public transport such as Volvo buses and trains to come to Rajasthan, we have deployed a separate team that will check the temperature and note down details of passengers at major bus stands and railway stations”.
The authorities at the border areas have already set up camps to check the negative Covid test reports of the commuters.
