Uttarakhand is going to celebrate new year under Covid-19


Uttarakhand is ready to enjoy the new year eve with full of energy and excitement. In the district of Dehradun the the government has made the rules a bit relaxed so that the celebration of new year can be done in hotels, restaurants.

The decision is mainly taken for the tourists, there are many tourists who have already booked the hotel for the celebrations. And that is why the government took this decision.


But on the other hand the government has said that they are going to follow all the covid guidelines and the celebrations are also going to be very much simple so that it will not take much time.

The social distancing will be followed by the guests and this is going to be allowed only in those hotels and restaurants where tourists have already made bookings for the New Year 2021.

The government of Uttarakhand has said that no one is allowed to use any kind of music and dance using any kind of DJ. They are allowed to enjoy but with some rules and regulations.


It is also said that if someone do not follow the rules and violate them and the hotel where the person is staying that hotel will be responsible for his actions. Sandeep Sahni, who is the president of the Uttarakhand Hotel Industry and Restaurant Association said that “Dehradun district administration has now given us some relaxations for celebrations on New Year’s Eve and New Year day. There are no such restrictions in other districts. We are ready to welcome tourists and will be conducting celebrations following all Covid-19 protocols.”

Sanjay Agarwal, secretary of Mussoorie Hotel Association said, ““The tourism industry has suffered a lot due to the pandemic and we thank the administration for providing relaxation for simple functions for in-house guests. The new year celebration is the major event for the industry as it will help generate the much-needed revenue.”


It is going to be helpful for the tourism department of the state and they are trying to earn some profit out of it. The government is going to keep an eye on the tourists and the people so that they will follow all the rules and regulations.
