Unlock 2.0 has witnessed several states and cities reopening after a long time. Now, it’s Uttarakhand that has removed the travel restrictions and reopened the state for tourism purposes. However, there are a few conditions which include, a mandatory COVID-19 negative test result or seven days’ hotel booking.

The government of Uttarakhand has opened borders for inter-state and inter-district tourism activities for now. So tourists visiting Uttarakhand from other states will now be able to explore the state freely without going under institutional quarantine if they carry their COVID-19 negative test result. But, as for the Char Dham Yatra, only residents of Uttarakhand will be allowed inside the temples.

Tourism Minister Shri Satpal Maharaj said that tourists from other states are now welcome to Uttarakhand. But he also added that any tourist will only be able to enter the state with their Coronavirus test result.

The minister further said that any kind of infection in the state will be prohibited and those working in the tourism sector will get employment once again.

Mussoorie, being one the most-visited and famous hill stations in Uttarakhand, has also come up with some precautionary measures. Tourists, who wish to visit Mussoorie will get entry only after showing the proof of booking for seven days under Unlock 2.0.

Mr Premlal, the SDM of Mussoorie, informed that tourists coming to Mussoorie must have their negative Corona report that has been issued in the last 72 hours. And if a person does not have it, then he/she will be quarantined for seven days, thereafter, they will be able to explore the hill station’s tourist attractions. And that’s why seven days’ hotel booking is necessary. However, Uttarakhand residents can roam around without any restrictions.

Also, no entry after 10 PM and before 7 AM would be allowed in Mussoorie.

Till now, Uttarahand has reported 3230 Coronavirus positive case and 43 deaths.
