New Year 2022: In the wake of a spike in COVID-19 cases in Goa, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant announced on Wednesday that parties & activities in the coastal state will only be permitted if guests have 100% vaccination certificates or coronavirus negative certifications.

The CM stated that for parties & restaurants, 100% vaccination or possession of a negative certificate is required; otherwise, persons will not be allowed to conduct gatherings. He noted that a detailed guidelines order to that effect would be released later on Wednesday.
