Goa has decided not to impose night curfew for now so that tourism business is not affected amid the New Year festive season, but hotels in the state are currently crowded with around 90 per cent people, compared to the already crowded beaches.

Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Wednesday said the Goa government will make it mandatory for people to have fully vaccinated or RT-PCR negative report for attending parties or entering restaurants.

Sawant said that the district administration would issue a notification to this effect by Wednesday evening. He said that the organizers of various events in the state will have to ensure that the guests carry these certificates.

Sawant further said that his government is monitoring the COVID-19 positivity rate and in case the rate rises, tough decisions will be taken during the task force meeting to be held on January 3.

The tourism industry stakeholder said that ahead of the New Year celebrations, hotels in the state are currently occupied by around 90 per cent people, while the beaches are already overcrowded. After a hiatus of almost a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, chartered flights from the UK have already started arriving in the state.
