Covid-19: Assam bans entry of unvaccinated people in malls, offices, other public places from today


Guwahati: Assam has clamped down restrictions on people who are yet to take both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.

From today onwards, movement of people who are yet to take both doses would be restricted.

Such people would not be allowed to enter offices or restaurants and shopping malls.

Any commercial establishment that fails to abide by these rules would be slapped with a fine of Rs 25,000.

People without both doses of vaccine would also not be able to travel in trains, aeroplanes or buses.

It is to be noted that Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma had earlier this month appealed to the people to get vaccinated with both doses by January 15.

He had also announced that all government employees who are yet to take both doses would not get their salaries. Such people would only be allowed to enter hospitals to get treatment.

Meanwhile, fresh notification has been issued at all shopping malls, restaurants and commercial establishments in Assam.

Now anybody wanting to enter any shopping mall would have to produce the certificate of having taken both doses.
