Producing either negative COVID-19 report or proof of full vaccination is now compulsory for all people intending to visit Himachal Pradesh from August 13, the state announced on Wednesday.

In its earlier order on August 6, the state government made mandatory a negative RT-PCR report or full vaccination for visiting temples in the state during 'Shrawan Ashtmi Navratras' from August 9 to August 17.

Further, it has also been decided that all schools would remain closed except residential ones from August 11 to 22. However, teaching and non-teaching staff members will attend schools, the order stated.
