Airport set to receive foreign returnees

Vijayawada: With the first international flight from Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom bringing back Indians stranded abroad expected to land in Vijayawada today, district collector A Mohammed Imtiaz and Nuzivid sub-collector Swapnil Dinakar inspected Vijayawada International Airport on Tuesday.
“Each and every international passenger who reaches the city will be thoroughly tested before heading for their home towns in buses,” Imtiaz said.
The collector inspected the special health desk arranged at the airport and directed officials to thoroughly screen foreign returnees. “We will strictly follow the Covid-19 medical protocol at the international airport. Each passenger will be screened before boarding buses. Special counters will be arranged for the registration,” Imtiaz said.

“Each foreign returnee has to undergo a mandatory 14 day home or government quarantine period as per guidelines and we have made necessary arrangements for this,” the collector said, adding, “We have alerted district administration across the state so that they can arrange quarantine facility.”
The collector said foreign returnees can opt for paid quarantine facilities at star and other prominent hotels in the city that have come forward to extend this service.
