As posted yesterday a person came from Nainital without any Covid Tests / checking at other side.

Only NH58 (old), Delhi Haridwar Highway Border of Uttarakhand and Dehradoon City are main Borders / points, where they are checking for temperature, if symptoms are there then they will do Covid Test.

What about the road blockages, I hope roads are open and no impact of Kisan Andolan.

Delhi - Meerut Border & Delhi - Ghaziabad NH24 Border is not recommended.
Daytime Protests are there.
You can leave early morning for the destination or go at night.
Barricading is at other borders causing some jam.
After crossing border, there is not much problem.

Also keep in mind about Bharat Bandh on 8th December 2020.

Plea in SC seeks removal of farmers protesting at Delhi borders

A petition was filed in the Supreme Court on Friday seeking direction to the authorities to immediately remove farmers, who are protesting at several Delhi border points against the new farm laws, saying commuters are facing hardships due to the road blockades and the gatherings might lead to increase in COVID-19 cases.

The plea has sought the apex court directions to the authorities to open the roads at Delhi borders, shift these protestors to allotted place and provide guidelines on social distancing and use of mask at the protest place to contain spread of COVID-19 cases.
The petition, filed by law student Rishabh Sharma, has claimed that Delhi Police had on November 27 allowed these protesters to hold demonstration peacefully at Nirankari ground at Burari in New Delhi but despite that they have blocked the borders of Delhi.



'Because of the ongoing protest at the Delhi borders, the roads have been blocked by the protesters and closed border points, which have affected vehicular traffic and people who are travelling to and from Delhi to get medical treatment in reputed government/private hospitals situated in Delhi are also affected,' said the plea, filed through advocate Om Prakash Parihar.
It referred to the October 7 verdict, delivered on a petition against blockade of a road in Shaheen Bagh area here by those protesting against Citizenship Amendment Act, in which the apex court had said that public spaces cannot be occupied indefinitely and demonstrations expressing dissent have to be in designated places alone.
Referring to COVID-19 guidelines issued by the government, the plea has said that despite the advisories not to hold large gathering amid the pandemic, lakhs of farmers have gathered on Delhi borders and this might lead to increase in the number of coronavirus cases.
'It is pertinent to note that in view of the prevention of the community spread of the pandemic disease Coronavirus (COVID-19), it is very necessary to remove the gathering and this protest is further blocking the roads for all the emergency/medical services which are very much required to be supplied within the territory of Delhi in order to stop the spread of coronavirus..,' it said.
'The petitioner is seeking urgent direction from this court to issue a direction for immediate removal/ dispersal of such mass gathering of protestors at Delhi borders and shift them to the place already allotted by the Delhi police in view of immediate threat of coronavirus infection and spread,' the plea said.
It said that protestors can continue to protest peacefully after threat of coronavirus is over and keeping in view that cases are currently increasing, it is paramount that the protest be stopped on immediate basis.



The plea said that due to the ongoing protest at Delhi borders, roads have been blocked and vehicular movement have been affected.
Traffic moved at snail's pace at several border points of the national capital as police kept key routes connecting Delhi to Haryana and Uttar Pradesh closed in view of the farmers' protest against the new farm laws, which entered its ninth day on Friday.

After a rise in Covid-19 cases, the Uttarakhand Police on Saturday announced that they would monitor details of the movement of people from other states to Uttarakhand.

The entry will be allowed to the people coming from outside states, especially from Delhi, at the Ashkrodi, Kulhan, and Pass Gate border check posts of the state only after undergoing the Rapid Antigen Covid-19 test.

The development has come at a time when coronavirus cases in Uttarakhand's capital Dehradun are on the rise. "Strict instructions are given to the policemen posted on the border check posts for proper checking and keeping the full details of people coming from other states to Uttarakhand," said Arun Mohan Joshi, Deputy Inspector General (DIG), Dehradun.


Earlier on Saturday, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat during a virtual conference had instructed officials to ensure that COVID-19 test results are available within 24 hours in urban areas and 48 hours in hilly areas.

According to an official release, "The Chief Minister instructed the District Magistrates to increase the testing speed in the districts and special attention should be paid to the RT-PCR test. Those who are found negative in the antigen test but are symptomatic, then their RT-PCR must be conducted. It should be ensured that the results of COVID-19 tests should be available within 24 hours in urban areas and 48 hours in hilly areas."

Meanwhile, the Uttarakhand state capital is preparing for a weekly lockdown of all market places from Sunday, November 29 with the exception of shops selling essential items.


At present, the state has recorded 4,812 active cases of coronavirus, while 67,514 people have recovered from the deadly virus, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) bulletin reported today.
