Jammu and Kashmir Govt issues fresh guidelines to regulate pilgrims at Mata Vaishno Devi


JAMMU, Oct 22 (KINS): To prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Jammu and Kashmir government has issued fresh guidelines to regulate pilgrims at the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine.

As per the new rules, pilgrims must carry a valid and verifiable RT-PCR or Rapid Antigen Test not older than 72 hours.

The decision was taken during a detailed review of the current COVID-19 situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

It was observed that there is a need to continue with the existing COVID-19 containment measures in all districts in view of the uneven trend observed every day in COVID-19 cases.

The key guidelines are:

Strict adherence to COVID-19 appropriate behaviour/SOP must be followed.

Valid and verifiable RT-PCR/Rapid Antigen Test not older than 72 hours of arrival should be made mandatory.

Only those pilgrims will be allowed to visit the shrine who do not show any COVID-19 related symptoms
