Tourists planning to visit Mussoorie from outside Uttarakhand will now need a negative report of an RT-PCR Covid-19 test, informed the local administration on Friday.

The development comes at a time when scores of unruly tourists have been flocking to the North Indian hill stations ever since the government relaxed the Covid-19 guidelines.

After Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand opened their gates to people from other states, large groups of maskless tourists can be seen daily throwing social distancing norms into the wind.

Thus, to maintain the protocols, the Mussoorie administration has made it mandatory for the incoming travellers to get online bookings of their accommodation by producing a negative Covid-19 report.

"As the summer is peaking, tourists have started coming to Mussoorie in large numbers. But they are defying the Covid-19-induced guidelines. Roaming without masks and not maintaining social distancing have become normal," said Narendra Pant, a police official in Mussoorie.

"Thus, the administration has decided to take a strong approach and made it mandatory to book hotels online with a negative report of Covid-19. Anyone without a negative report will not be allowed to enter Mussoorie," he added.
Meanwhile, most tourists seem to be hesitant about the pandemic. While they hope others will wear masks and maintain social distancing, not many are ready to do the same by themselves.

"I am loving it here in Mussoorie. People should put their masks on and maintain social distancing norms," said Simran from Punjab. However, she refused to speak when asked why she did not wear a mask herself.

The police had stated the day before that additional checkpoints have been set up at the Kuthal gate and Kimadi areas that are en route to Mussoorie.

Only those who have the documents are being allowed to proceed to Mussoorie and the rest are being returned, Mussoorie's Circle Officer Narendra Pant said.

In addition to this, Uttarakhand has made it mandatory for tourists who are planning to visit Mussoorie and Nainital from outside the state to furnish a negative RT-PCR Covid-19 test not older than 72 hours.

Further, people are also required to register on the Dehradun Smart City portal and get a prior online booking of their accommodation.

Despite this, long queues of vehicles were seen choking the streets of Mussoorie town on Saturday.

"We came here to enjoy ourselves with family but due to heavy traffic, we have wasted a lot of time here in the car," a tourist was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

About the possibility of a third wave hitting the country, they said: "Yes it is risky. But if you are following the precautions then it is okay."

"The old lifestyle will not return, so all we can do is take precautions," they added.

Another tourist from Meerut said: "We are here to enjoy the weather. If we will always be afraid of Covid, we will not be able to live our lives."

Highlighting the parking crunch at Mussoorie, Tanishq, a visitor from Delhi told ANI: "We were stopped at the checkpoint since their policy changed midnight. The parking situation is very bad here."

"We are all vaccinated and are taking care of the Covid protocols, so I don't think there should be a problem," he added.

The authorities in Mussoorie have said that there has been a decline of 50% in tourist inflow due to the restrictions this weekend in comparison to the last.

The district administration had also earlier announced restrictions on visitors going to the Kempty fall, stating that only 50 people would be allowed at one time.
