As per the reports, Goa will not be imposing night curfew as the state government has decided not to do so as it will affect tourism during the peak period of Christmas and New years.
Referring to this, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant stated that the government would monitor the covid-19 positivity rate and take stringent actions during the meeting with the task force, which is scheduled on January 03.
As of now, there is no night curfew; however, if cases flare-up, stringent actions will be taken.
As per the state health department, Goa currently has 535 active COVID cases. Reportedly, the positivity rate in the state stood at 4.03% on Tuesday, which was up from 3.99% on Monday.
The Chief Minister has urged residents not to party with foreign nationals who are yet to complete their quarantine period. “There are 1,300 foreigners who have arrived here recently. Their re-testing would be done after the quarantine period is over. The maximum number of tourists will arrive in Goa on December 31.”
He further informed that although 94% of the eligible beneficiaries in the state have been fully vaccinated, the remaining six percent are delaying in taking the dose.
