Goa: While the state government is yet to decide on when to permit the hospitality industry to reopen, tourism minister Manohar Ajgaonkar called for resumption of the sector only after people are fully vaccinated. He, however, said that if operations were to restart in the near future, they would be permitted only if protocols introduced by the government are properly followed.
It is my suggestion that tourists who have taken both vaccine doses be allowed entry. The people of the state also need to be fully vaccinated for the industry to open. We don’t know how long this will take, but if the government opens the sector shortly with SOPs in place, I will support the move,” Ajgaonkar told to The News24 Goa , even as he confirmed that no discussions have taken place so far to decide when Goa should throw open its tourism sector.
