Quarantine rules for inter-state travellers have been tweaked again in light of the increase in Covid cases in Karnataka.
Now, those arriving from Maharashtra will be under 7-day institutional quarantine and 7-day home quarantine.
The decision also takes into account the increasing number of infections in Maharashtra.
The order, issued by Principal Secretary to the Revenue Department and Member- Secretary, Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority, N Manjunatha Prasad, states that persons from other states coming to Karnataka will have to undergo 14 days’ home quarantine.
Furthermore, quarantine surveillance has been augmented through application of technology and an increase in the number of surveillance teams.
