One of Rajasthan’s most popular travel destinations, Udaipur, has now enforced a new rule for travellers visiting the city. The district administration in Udaipur has provided fresh directions to several tourism stakeholders, such as lodgings, airport authorities, and airline companies. Udaipur has noticed a rise in COVID-19 cases in current days. Udaipur has mandated travellers from Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Punjab, Kerala, and Haryana to get RT-PCR test done and confirm negative reports, which should not be older than 72 hours from the time of arrival in Udaipur.

Udaipur has imposed these constraints since the 29 people tested positive in the city’s Ambamata region. 24 of those 29 who tested positive are students of a blind school. Regardless, the good news is that out of the 105 samples that were tested in the containment zone, only 3 have appeared to be positive. The Udaipur administration has asked inhabitants to remain indoors, and administrators have been asked to supply essential products and edible commodities.

The District Collector at a meeting with the district-level task force inquired hotels, tour operators, and airline corporations to be more cautious in the coming days when operating a business with travellers from the above-mentioned states. Not simply airports, but railway stations and bus stands will also be closely surveyed in the city. Travellers in the town will also be penalized if they are not wearing masks and maintaining social distancing.

The District Collector further announced that hotels are not allowed to accept bookings and provide rooms to travellers without discovering a negative coronavirus report. If in case someone manages to get a room in the city, the city administration has instructed that the hotel will require to provide the test performed for such visitors, and the guest must stay inside the hotel room until the report proves to be negative. In the case of a positive report, the hotel must announce the case to the medical department.
