Goa will only allow tourists when the whole state takes the first vaccine dose

The government is planning to vaccinate the entire population of Goa by 31st July.

The Chief Minister of Goa, Mr. Pramod Sawant made a major announcement today regarding the opening of tourism in Goa. He said that the entire population of Goa will have to take the vaccine dose and only then the tourists will be allowed to enter the state.

Without the tourists, the tourism sector will face huge financial problems. Goa is largely dependent on tourists and the new announcement will delay the recovery of the tourism sector in Goa. The Covid-related restrictions are still imposed until 21st June and the lockdown restrictions are expected to be further relaxed after 21st June.

With the restrictions, the restaurants, bars, casinos, schools, and colleges have been closed. All tourism-related businesses have been suffering since the beginning of coronavirus-induced lockdown measures. Presently, the only restriction for the tourists is the presentation of the Covid-19 negative report at the state border.

The Chief Minister said that the government is trying to vaccinate 100 percent of the state population by 30th July. He also said clearly that there is no plan to start tourism activities until the first jab of vaccination is received by everyone.

Following is the news report from ‘CNN New 18’ which talks about the announcement made by the Chief Minister of Goa, Mr. Pramod Sawant.
