PANAJI: On request of Goa govt High Court today waived off the requirement of Covid negative certificate for two drivers and one helper per goods vehicle entering the state until further orders.
However, such persons will have to scanned by thermal gun to ascertain if they are displaying any symptoms. If they show symptoms, they will have to be denied permission to enter Goa.
This is not a general license for any person to enter Goa without Covid negative certificate, the court said in its order. All other people except those entering Goa on medical emergency will have to produce covid negative certificate issued within 72-hours of entry into state.
