Karachi: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has issued an advisory for international flights operating in Pakistan which will remain valid till May 30 — a news source reported. From now onward, passengers who test negative will be exempted from mandatory quarantine at government facilities.
The new standard operating procedures will be implemented from May 11 through May 30. The passengers that test negative will now be allowed to self-isolate at their homes for 14 days instead of the government quarantine facility; as was the case previously.
However, according to the advisory for international flights, if an individual tests positive, then they will have to stay at a government-run quarantine facility or a hotel. People testing positive may be allowed to self-isolate at home later, if their conditions do not deteriorate; but, they will not be allowed to travel to a different province until they are cleared by the health officials.
The ban of domestic flights will, nevertheless, remain in effect for now — with the ban having been extended till May 30.
