The Uttarakhand government on Monday decided that the e-pass issued either by the Char Dham Devasthanam Board would be sufficient for the devotees coming to the Char Dham shrines and they would not be required be register themselves on the Smart City portal. Till now, the pilgrims had to complete both the formalities to come to the state for the Char Dham yatra.

Moreover, as per the latest SOP issued by the Uttarakhand government, the Covid curfew has been extended in the state till October 19. For Char Dham yatra, it mentions that those who have spent 15 days after the double dose of vaccination can get their e-pass and undertake the yatra. However, those pilgrims who have not been administered the first or second dose of vaccination would be required to produce an RT-PCR/TrueNat/CBNAAT/RAT Covid negative report (not before 72 hours of the arrival time).

However, as the states of Kerala, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh still have a high number of Covid cases, the pilgrims from these three states need to complete 15 days after being administered the second vaccination dose and also produce the RT-PCR negative report at the time of arrival.

Meanwhile, the Centre has directed the states to remain alert from November 7, which marks the start of Navratri, to December 31, the last day of the year. “Any laxity in implementation of Covid-appropriate behaviour could lead to serious consequences and can result in a surge in cases,” states an official letter from the department of health and family welfare of the central government.
