BENGALURU: In yet another amendment to its

standard operating procedure

(SOP) for people returning from other states, the

Karnataka

government on Monday said travellers from Chennai and Delhi will have to be in

institutional quarantine

for three days followed by 11-day

home isolation

.
Following a meeting with ministers and officials to discuss the

surge

in Covid-19 cases in the state, CM BS Yediyurappa said, until now, only those arriving from

Maharashtra

had to mandatorily spend seven days in institutional quarantine, “but now we have decided to quarantine people coming from Chennai and Delhi in institutional facilities for three days as these two cities are witnessing a surge in positive cases.” He added, “These travellers will also have be in home quarantine for 11 days.”
Yediyurappa said restrictions were imposed also because cases in the state have seen a big increase after borders were opened. “Now we have to tighten measures to check the surge," he said.
