    Team let me know domestic passenger via flight querantine required or not

    As flights are set to resume from May 25, Karnataka has mandated 14-day quarantine for all passengers coming to the state via flights.
    As per the latest standard operating procedure, returnees from high prevalence states coming via road, rail, air should be kept in institutional quarantine for 7 days and after negative COVID test, they should be sent for another 7-day home quarantine.
     
    As of May 22, Karnataka government has included Maharashtra, Gujarat, Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh in high prevalence states.
    "Returnees from low prevalence states should be asked to follow 14 days of home quarantine," the state government said.
    The state government has been clarifying to passengers on Twitter about the matter.
    It is important to note that Union Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri had said that generally, quarantine would not be necessary for air travellers as it would not be feasible. However, the latest directive from Karnataka government is expected to hamper the demand pattern of various flights to Karnataka as a mandatory 14-day quarantine would be difficult for all to implement.
