In order to control the influx of tourists visiting the Indian state of Uttarakhand, the state government has decided to impose certain restrictions in popular hill stations like Mussoorie and Nainital.
According to the Dehradun Police department, those visiting Mussoorie will have to provide a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test report. Additionally, they are required to register on the Dehradun Smart City Portal and submit documents related to their accommodation, only then travellers will be allowed to enter the hill station.
