    If you are coming for business trip, with less than 5 days of Stay... Go for Covid-19 test today itself, so that you can get the Negative test report by 26th.

    Otherwise, you will be put into Institutional Quarantine as you are coming from High risk state.

    In twitter - @DHFWKA (K'taka Health Dept) has complete guidelines...
