May 28: Aiming to contain the Covid-19 spread in the UT, the Ladakh government has made it mandatory for people to carry negative RT-PCR tests reports who wish to travel to Ladakh.
Adding up to it, visitors will also have to undergo Rapid Antigen Test upon arriving in the region. The announcement was made via Ladakh Tourism authorities via Twitter.
If you wish to travel to Ladakh, here are a set of rules you must follow:
– Visitors would be sent to a nearby quarantine centre once they arrive in Ladakh.
– A mandatory negative RT-PCR test report upon arrival (not more than 96 years old)
– Visitors will be undergoing Rapid Antigen Test, upon arrival
– If the visitor is found positive, he-she will be sent to a nearby quarantine facility for isolation
In its informative post, it said, “The change in guidelines isn’t expected to cause any inconvenience to passengers. Those travelling by road or via air must, in addition to a negative COVID-19 test report, undergo rapid antigen testing on arrival in the Union Territory.”
