Meghalaya to close its doors to tourists from outside the state from April 23
Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma, on Monday, April 19, informed that entry of tourists from outside the state will be restricted from April 23 given the surge in the COVID-19 cases but, maintained that local tourism will continue.
“This will be applicable for the next 14 days post-April 23 but, local tourists would still be able to visit some of the tourist destinations,” Sangma said.
The CM said that the respective deputy commissioners would be given the liberty to decide on the closure of tourist spots that might witness heavy footfall.
“There will also be closure in tourist locations that have high tourist footfall… we have to ensure there is no crowding,” he added.
Furthermore, Sangma added that the time frame of RT-PCR tests will be reduced from 72 to 48 hrs.
