The second wave of coronavirus pandemic has hit several cities in Indian states, whereby strict guidelines have been imposed in locations like Delhi, Shimla, Goa, and others. As per reports, the condition in the national capital is becoming worrisome, and to ensure the safety of the citizens in Maharashtra, the state government has issued new regulations for all travellers.

CM Uddhav Thackeray, while addressing the media before Diwali, warned the state about the second wave, and also asked everyone to be cautious for 15 days post the festival. As expected, the number of patients in the city has increased and the state government has decided to take timely steps and has imposed restrictions on Maharashtra-Delhi travel. 

Revised guidelines issued by the government states that all passengers arriving at the Maharashtra border will now be screened, and passengers arriving by train or flight from Delhi, Goa, Rajasthan and Gujarat will have to present a COVID19 test report. Incase positive, the patients will have to return home or undergo treatment, and it is mandatory for the RTPCR report to be negative to get permission to enter Maharashtra.

The rules issued by the state government are applicable for rail, air and road travel, whereby passengers from Rajasthan, Delhi, Goa and Gujarat should carry the RTPCR test report with them, and the report should have been issued in the last 72 hours. If the passengers travelling by air, do not have a coronavirus test report, they should get a COVID19 test done at the airport, at their own expense. Passengers will be able to get out of the airport only if the test report is negative. In case positive, passengers will have to return to their state. Furthermore, if the passengers are travelling to Maharashtra by rail, they should have done the RTPCR test issued in the last 96 hours.

Besides this, those who have a positive test report will be contacted and treated as per the existing protocol. In case of the commute by road, passengers will be screened at all the borders of the state, and if the passengers show signs of coronavirus infection, they will be asked to return from the state border itself.
