Short duration visitors including business travellers will not be required to undergo isolation in Maharashtra, the state government said in its standard operating procedures for domestic air travel.

"Passengers who are coming to the state for a short duration (less than one week) and have planned for onward/return journey will have to share details of the same and will be exempted from isolation," the government order said.

Maharashtra had resisted opening of domestic flights due to spike in Covid-19 cases and now also limited flights are being allowed in Mumbai.
