The world is slowly opening up for travel and so is India. India is not yet ready for international travellers but many states have opened up for domestic travellers. It’s a good news for travel lovers that they can finally get out and do what they love. But during this time travelling comes with responsibilities. It’s not going to be as easy as it used to be.
Here are some points for you to take note before you hit the road:
Not every state demands the requirement of COVID test when you enter but there are some states with mandatory requirement of COVID test before entering the state. But it’s always better to be responsible and get a COVID test before travelling.
Needless to say, it’s always wise to research about the place where you are headed to. Due to COVID situation all the states are being very careful than ever before and also many restrictions has been imposed for travellers. For instance, to enter Meghalaya it is required to have a test report of COVID and also some registration of entree is required. So it’s better to be aware of the situation you will be facing beforehand and know the necessary requirements, this will make your travel less hassle.
When you plan to travel to a certain place you have something about that place that attracts you which compels you to travel. For example- you want to travel to Rishikesh to experience river rafting and bungee jumping. But during this time not every activities and attractions are operational. So we suggest you to be updated and not let go your trip in vain.
Precaution is the KEY:
Precaution is the key for safe travel for you and also for others. Taking precautions is the only responsibility we have during this time. Make sure to adhere to these precautionary measures when you are outside:
Wear mask everywhere
Take your sanitiser with you
Sanitise every now and then
Wash your hands frequently
Avoid unnecessary crowd
Maintain social distancing whenever and wherever you can
Aarogya Setu APP:
When you are travelling it is necessary to be well informed about the COVID situation of that place. Aarogya Setu is the app that gives you information about everything related to COVID-19. Regardless of wherever you are within India, it keeps you updated of the situation in that place. You can also self check for COVID anytime with this app. This app acts like a guide if you have any doubt related to COVID. And also when you install this app you are playing your part of being a responsible citizen.
We are obviously looking forward to travel to be resumed but during times like this we should adhere to certain guidelines and safety protocols to eliminate COVID-19 so that we can travel again freely like before. As much as we would like you to travel, Wovoyage encourages safe and responsible travel.
