Inter-state travel restrictions were lifted from Monday, but people coming from Maharashtra to Karnataka would be subjected to several conditions, including seven days institutional quarantine, in view of high prevalence of Covid-19 cases in the western state.

As per the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) issued by the department of health, all inter-state travellers entering Karnataka would be subjected to mandatory health screening and placed in home quarantine for 14 days.

However, for those from Maharashtra it specified seven days of institutional quarantine followed by seven days of home quarantine even if they were asymptomatic, it said.

Tests will be conducted for people having symptoms.

"These measures were necessary as maximum cases are of those who returned from Maharashtra," a health official said adding migrant labourers with travel history to the neighbouring state contributed to the recent spike in cases in Karnataka.
