Meghalaya HC disposes of PIL against mandatory Covid-19 tests on the unvaccinated

-

Meghalaya Aug 30(ILNS): The Meghalaya High Court recently disposed of the PIL alleging mandatory testing was being conducted by the concerned State respondents on people who have been not vaccinated against Covid-19.

The Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Biswanath Somadder and Justice H.S. Thangkhiew upon perusing the various notifications and orders annexed to the petition did not find any iota of arbitrariness or irrationality in respect of the action taken by the concerned authority of the State pursuant to the issuance of such notifications and orders.

The Court in its order clarified that the concerned State respondents shall not insist on mandatory testing in respect of those who have been fully vaccinated already.

“However, it will be open to the concerned authority of the State to insist on conducting such tests as required and/or mandated by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, in respect of those who have not yet been fully vaccinated,” the order reads. The PIL had been filed by one Rockcliff Rap Bor Roy Thabah./ILNS/SS/SNG
