The Punjab government has made e-registration compulsory for all travellers from July 6 onwards. The move came after the Chief Minister of Punjab, Capt. Amarinder Singh dismissed the relaxation of the mandatory 14-day home isolation since there is a possibility of risk from those coming from high-risk zones like Delhi NCR.

According to the Times of India, the government of Punjab has made strict guidelines for those planning to enter the state via air, train or road. They must register themselves on the app ‘Cova’ or log on to the official website, before beginning their trip.

The state’s idea behind the e-registration is to make it a hassle-free entry for passengers at the border checkpoints. Additionally, passengers will also have to undergo thermal screening and will be allowed to enter only if they don’t show COVID-19 symptoms.

While asymptomatic patients will need to undergo their 14-day home isolation, symptomatic passengers will be guided by authorities on the next steps. The authorities will also be equipped with real-time alert systems to be able to immediately alert the police about the entry and exit of all persons at the borders.
