In an effort to contain the spread of the pandemic from other states, the Chamarajanagar district authorities have made it mandatory for the passengers entering the state from Kerala via Moolehole near Gundlupet taluk to furnish a Covid-negative report.
Tightening the norms, Tahsildar C G Ravishankar has directed the authorities to allow only those with Covid-negative reports into the taluk.
He gave strict instructions to staff at the checkpost at Moolehole that passengers in the vehicles from Kerala without negative report should not be allowed entry for any reason. He also inspected the checkpost.
Thermal screening should be conducted even if negative reports are furnished and ensure they wear masks, the officer said.
