Compulsory Covid screening for Kerala tourists: Mysuru SP Ryshyanth

Mysuru, March 18:- In view of the impending threat of the second wave of coronavirus, the towns bordering Kerala state have been put on high alert. Those coming from Kerala will have to compulsorily undergo a coronavirus test, said Mysuru Superintendent of Police C B Ryshyanth here on Thursday (March 18).

Talking to reporters, he said, “All the vehicles coming from Kerala are being checked. Coronavirus test is a must and if there is a miss, a rapid test will be conducted. I have already spoken to Wayanad SP Aravind and requested him to give priority to the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.”

Ryshyanth said, “Barring this, there is no restriction for those coming from Hassan, Kodagu, Mandya and Bengaluru districts. The number of tourists coming from Maharashtra to Mysuru is considerably less and the respective borders will handle the situation accordingly.” (MR/KS)
