Passengers entering Karnataka from Kerala will now be asked to furnish either an RT-PCR negative report or a Covid-19 vaccination certificate of both doses, an official order issued on Thursday stated.
Delta Plus variant being reported in certain districts of Kerala was the reason behind the action.
According to the order, the RT-PCR negative report should not be older than 72 hours, and the vaccine certificate should specify both doses of Covid vaccine. The rule will be applicable to all passengers entering Karnataka by flight, bus, train, taxi, and personal transport.
Deputy commissioners of all districts sharing borders with Kerala, namely Dakshina Kannada, Kodagu, Mysuru and Chamarajanagar have been instructed to deploy adequate staff at check posts to enforce the rule.
