Although the borders have opened up within Indian states, certain norms have to be adhered to, to ensure that there is no multiplication of COVID-19 cases. There is no restriction with regard to acquiring an E-pass, but other mandatory protocols have to be followed if you plan to tour around Uttarakhand. Let’s have a look at the same.
