In view of the surge in Covid cases in the last few days, the Himachal Government on Wednesday decided to monitor all inter-state movement into the state through registration on the e-covid software.

The Disaster Management Cell of the Revenue department on Wednesday issued the order in this regard. As per the order, all movement into the state will be monitored through registration on the Covid e-registration software covid19epass.hp.gov.in. The total number of active Covid cases in the state has risen to 2,733 within the last fortnight with an average of 300 new cases being reported daily.

 However, all goods carriers, whether loaded or unloaded and movement of goods or cargo for inland and exports, are exempted from the restrictions.

Children below the age of 18 years if accompanied by their parents who are either carrying their RT-PCR report or both vaccine certificates will also remain exempted.
