For Tamil Nadu:
International passengers travelling to the state from at-risk countries will have to undergo mandatory RT-PCR tests.
If tested positive, they will be immediately isolated and shifted to a medical facility. Their contacts will be identified and managed as per the protocol. Travellers who test negative will have to undergo home quarantine for seven days and take a retest on the eighth day.
If found negative, they will have to self monitor their health for the next seven days. The sample of the passengers who test positive on the eighth day will be sent for genome testing.
Those from countries except at-risk countries will be allowed to leave the airport and will have to self-monitor their health for 14 days. However, 2% of the passengers (preferably from different countries) will still have to undergo tests.
