e-registration must for travel in Punjab

Chandigarh, July 6

Punjab has made e-registration mandatory for travellers entering or passing through the state, beginning Monday midnight. They need to register themselves either through COVA app or on official website cova.punjab.gov.in/registration.

The staff at the border checkpoints will scan the QR code on the printout. All travellers will be screened for Covid. Those asymptomatic will have to undergo self-quarantine for 14 days. They would have to report their health status daily either on 112 or via Cova. “For symptomatic passengers, appropriate instructions will be given at the checkpoint,” said a government spokesperson.

He said details about those entering Punjab would be shared with the health authorities and the police stations concerned through a real-time alert system. The police stations would keep a check on the incoming visitors at their given addresses. — TNS
