Bhubaneswar: Hours after Health and Family Welfare Minister Naba Kishore Das informed that RT-PCR negative report is mandatory for people coming from COVID-19 hotspots, the Special Relief Commissioner’s office extended it to include every state and all forms of public transport.

“People coming to Odisha by any public transport like train, bus, aeroplane, or waterways or by any private vehicles have to produce RT-PCR negative report obtained within 72 hrs of entry/ final vaccination certificate (after two doses of vaccination),” SRC’s office said in a statement.

The Transport Department has alerted all border check-points to manage the entry of people. Collectors of Sundargarh, Jharsuguda, Sambalpur, Bargarh, Balangir, Nuapada, Kalahandi, Nabarangpur, Koraput, Malkangiri, Ganjam, Gajapati, Rayagada, Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj and Balasore districts have been asked to set up temporary medical centres to provide institutional quarantine facilities for people coming from other states.
