Planning Vaishno Devi pilgrimage? Must check fresh guidelines issused by J-K govt

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jammu and Kashmir government has issued a fresh set of guidelines to regulate pilgrims travelling to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine.

Jammu: In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jammu and Kashmir government has issued a fresh set of guidelines to regulate pilgrims travelling to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine. To curb the spread of Covid-19, the J&K government has mandated RT-PCR/Rapid Antigen Tests and strict adherence to Covid appropriate behaviour.

In the new order people visiting the temple will need to have a valid and verifiable RT-PCR/Rapid Antigen Test not older than 72 hours of arrival at the Union Territory. The order issued by the Jammu and Kashmir government on Friday further informed that only those pilgrims who do not show any COVID symptoms will be allowed to enter the shrine. “Valid and verifiable RT-PCR/Rapid Antigen Test not older than 72 hours of arrival should be made mandatory. Only those pilgrims will be allowed to visit the shrine who do not show any COVID-19 related symptoms,” the order said.

“Strict adherence to COVID-19 appropriate behaviour/SOP must be followed,” the order undersigned by the Chief Secretary of the UT said. This comes after it was observed that there is an uneven trend in the COVID-19 cases in the UT and there is a need to continue with the existing COVID-19 containment measures in all districts.
