Jaipur: People coming to Rajasthan including its capital city Jaipur will need to carry an RT-PCR negative test report. If the report was not found in their possession, they will be quarantined for 15 days. The test must be within 72 hours of arrival. The latest Rajasthan government orders will come into effect on March 25.

The government announced several measures to contain the fresh wave of COVID-19 in the state. Night curfew has also been clamped with effect from March 22.

Earlier, a negative RT-PCR report was mandatory for visitors from a few states including Kerala, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Punjab, Haryana, and Madhya Pradesh. However, this will be applicable to visitors arriving in Rajasthan from anywhere in the country.

“If the visitor doesn’t show a negative report, he or she will be put in a quarantine for a minimum of 15 days. All the district collectors have been asked to make special arrangements for institutional quarantine centres,” said an officer.

The government has also asked department heads to call employees to the office on a need-basis. The department heads will be authorized to take a decision in this regard.
