Assam: New SOP to be issued from Oct 1, all national parks to re-open

Guwahati: Assam health minister Keshab Mahanta on Thursday said that a new standard of procedures will be issued in the state which will come into effect from October 1, 2021.

“We will announce the relaxation in the sop before October 1. Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has thought on this and said that more relaxation will be provided to the people so that they can enjoy the occasion of Durga Puja,” the minister said.

Meanwhile, CM Himanta Biswa Sarma Wednesday announced plans to lift all COVID-19 restrictions from most parts of the state, especially from the wildlife tourist destinations.

“The pandemic has taken a huge toll on those who depend on tourism activities for their livelihood. We have cleared withdrawal of all COVID-19 restrictions in all the national parks and wildlife sanctuaries and wildlife safari, hotels, resorts, and all activities in these destinations have been allowed to return to normal functioning from October 1,” CM Sarma stated.

He further added that except for some parts where “there might be two or three percent of restrictions,” the state was looking at going back to normal life from next month, but underlined the need for the people of the state to get themselves vaccinated.

Meanwhile, in Kaziranga, tourism-related businesses have started making preparations to welcome guests. Almost every other house is directly or indirectly connected to tourism activities in Kaziranga.
