The State Government has released the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for operation of domestic flights set to resume from Monday. All passengers arriving will be kept under institutional quarantine.
Garhwal commissioner Ravinath Raman and SDRF inspector general Sanjay Gunjyal will be designated as the State nodal officers for effective coordination between states.
The district administration shall designate liaison officers at the airport (preferably, one officer from administration and the other from police with sufficient support staff) and establish a help desk for facilitation of passengers. People who are desirous of travelling by flight shall mandatorily get themselves registered on the web portal https://dsclservices.in/uttarakhand-migrantregistration.php. Also, the guidelines of Ministry of Civil Aviation shall be strictly adhered to.
Thermal screening of all the passengers shall be ensured at the airport and health desk will be set up at the airport accordingly (only for outbound).
The liaison officers shall ensure that all arriving passengers are kept in institutional quarantine for a time period, as specified by the health authorities/ state government unless they show symptoms which require keeping them in medical facilities. All inbound passengers shall be given a choice to select quarantine centre on their own. Complete list of quarantine centres, on payment basis, shall be available at the help desk. The liaison officers shall ensure that only earmarked vehicles exempted by district administration are used for transportation of such passengers to quarantine centres.
Such inbound people, who have been authorised by the State government for essential services or other purposes, shall ensure movement directly to the quarantine centre designated for them.
They shall, however, be allowed to move to their place of work, and it shall be the responsibility of the establishment concerned to ensure that all norms of safety and social distancing, as per MoHFW and MHA guidelines, are strictly complied with.
