With domestic flights and trains to be resumed, Himachal Government on Sunday issued guidelines for those travelling to the state by air or rail, making a 14-day institutional quarantine mandatory for those coming from red zones.

As per the guidelines issued by the Disaster Management Cell in the Himachal Pradesh State Disaster Management Authority today, all air and rail travellers, the air ticket, boarding pass or conformed rail ticket will be sufficient to facilitate further movement from the airport or railway station to their respective destination.

A valid ID proof will have to be shown wherever needed. However, the entry and exit into or from the state will be allowed only between 7 am to 7 pm.

Those coming from a red zone will have the choice to opt for paid 14 days quarantine facility while those coming from orange or green zone will have to stay under 14-day home quarantine.
