Inter-state movement in and out of Himachal Pradesh will continue to remain restricted and inter-state public transportation will continue to remain forbidden during Unlock 3.0, according to a state federal government order issued here on Friday.

However, shops in the state will be enabled to open this Sunday ahead of Raakhi.

Religious places/places of praise will be allowed to function according to SOPs released by the federal government. Gymnasiums and yoga institutes will also be enabled to run from August 5 based on federal government SOPs, the order stated.

Movement in and out of the state will primarily be kept track of through registration on the state’s COVID-19 e-pass portal ( http://covid19 epass hp gov.in) barring some exceptions, such as members of militaries or main paramilitary forces coming to the state to sign up with back their duties.

Travelers are still needed to have prior booking of 5 days at an authorized tourist unit, a negative Covid RT-PCR test report from an ICMR-authorised laboratory in the last 72 hours (at the time of entry) and registration on the state’s online portal, in order to go into the state.

The movement and quarantine of employees, traders, industrialists, commission agents and others will also largely advance the very same pattern as previously. Anyone having a negative Covid report from an ICMR authorised lab in the last 72 hours or who has completely recuperated and has a negative report provided through the RT-PCR test by an ICMR-approved lab will be excused from quarantine, the order said.

Five from Army, one from Navy among 103 brand-new Covid cases
