Despite the higher number of Covid-19 cases reported along with the Zika virus scare in neighboring Kerala, the Karnataka government is resuming bus services to the state from Monday.
Passengers will have to carry a negative RT-PCR test report obtained within 72 hours prior to travel or a vaccination certificate of having received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine as per the guidelines of the Karnataka government.
Students, businessmen, among others who travel on a daily basis to the state from Kerala should get tested every 15 days and must carry the RT-PCR report along with them.
The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) will operate buses from Bengaluru, Mysuru, Mangaluru, Putturu and other places based on the requirement.
The KSRTC in a press release said this decision has been taken for the convenience of the people. The KSRTC had stopped inter-state bus services due to the lockdown.
