As the number of positive cases begins to rise at an alarming rate throughout the nation, the Kerala government zeroes down to a new set of rules applicable while travelling. The authorities have made it mandatory for all travellers entering Kerala to carry a negative RT-PCR test report. This points out the fact that irrespective of which state you are from, you should undergo an RT-PCR test.
As per the advisory, travellers must undergo their test within 48 hours of their arrival. Even if you have received the vaccination, you are still bound to get yourself tested. Therefore, this blanket rule is for travellers from all the states.
Moreover, people who are getting their test done on arrival should undergo home quarantine until their reports are given. If you are detected positive, you should take medical assistance.
If you are detected negative, you are required to maintain all the Covid protocols as long as you are in the state. Such norms include maintaining social distancing, wearing proper masks and sanitizing your hands at regular intervals. These norms shall be followed at all places and at all times. According to the latest rules, symptomatic people are required medical attention at the fastest possible time.
In accordance to the norms that the Government of India has laid out, the international commuters are required to adhere to them and immediately go for medical treatment in case there is any influenza-like symptoms. The international passengers too should undergo an RT-PCR test within 72 hours of their arrival. In addition to this, they are mandatorily required to go for a 14 day home quarantine.
