No Mandatory COVID Test For Children Below 10 Years Entering Assam

The Assam Government has decided to do away with the mandatory COVID-19 testing of children below 10 years of age entering Assam with double vaccinated guardians.

Fully vaccinated adults coming into the state were already exempted from compulsory testing for the infection through an earlier order.

Anotification issued by Anurag Goel, principal secretary, Health and Family Welfare department, on Monday said, “Children below 10 years of age along with double vaccinated parent(s)/ guardian(s) coming to Assam are hereby exempted from the mandatory COVID-19 testing.”

“However, voluntary paid testing for such children shall be facilitated if the parents/ guardians so desire,” it added.
