Domestic passengers arriving in Mumbai will now have to isolate at home for 14 days as a precaution against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said in a statement.

"All passengers arriving in Mumbai will be stamped on their left hand for identification and will have to compulsorily undergo home isolation and self-monitor for a period of 14 days as per protocol. Local authorities will be authorised to give exemptions for contributing to an office or other important work after checking passengers," the statement said.

The statement also addressed the issue of government officials landing and securing exemption by showing their identity cards saying, "Any exemption request for any government servant has to be made in writing at least two working days before landing stating full details of the work."

With 4,79,779 positive cases, Maharashtra continues to be the state with the higher number of positive COVID-19 cases. There are currently 1,46,612 active cases and 3,16,375 patients have recovered.

So far, 16,792 deaths have been reported in the state.
