Unlock 5 travel guidelines: What you need to know&nbsp

The Centre announced the next set of unlock guidelines for India now that October is upn us. Of course, the key point of interest here is what is now allowed once again? Well, plenty of things will now be allowed in India under the purview of Unlock 5, including re-opening of schools, cinema halls, and several other things. But in this article we will focus on the travel related guidelines issued by the Home ministry. So, let’s get to it then, shall we?

  1. International flights and thus international air travel for passengers remains banned till 31 October. This does not include the exceptions permitted by MHA.
  2. States across India are not permitted to implement any local lockdown outside Containment Zones without consulting the central government.
  3. Restriction-free inter-state and intra-state travel as well as movement of goods has already been allowed. It continues to remain in effect and there is no need for individual approval, e pass, e permit, etc. for it as well.

Quite frankly, the biggest changes under unlock 5 guidelines was really for colleges, schools, hotels, etc. The Centre announced schools and colleges will be allowed to re-open from 15 October, though the final decision will be of the states and the institutions. Besides that, MHA said that cinema halls, multiplexes, and exhibition halls too will be able to open once again.

Corona Virus (COVID_19)

Stay Home Stay Safe

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider

Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.
