  1. What are the Govt regulations for international travellers regarding COVID-19?
    Govt regulations keep changing frequently, so please keep yourself updated from reliable Govt sources and also your airlines.
    You may refer to this website regarding latest updates on Govt regulations, rules for international travellers.
    It has updates on
    • Mandatory home quarantine
    • RT-PCR testing requiements
    • Classification of countries as ‘At Risk’ and others
  2. What are the guidelines advised by the Shala regarding COVID protocols, RT-PCR testing facilities, etc
    Given that awareness about COVID is widespread and all of us have first hand witnessed the impact of it globally, we expect the students to be vigilant and cautious.
    The symptoms, side effects, precautionary measures, safety habits, etc have all been shared very regularly by respective government agencies, news and media channels also.
    COVID test kits are available in local pharmacies or can be purchased online on e-commerce websites. If any student is feeling sick and especially feels that the symptoms are like COVID, we have already advised:

    Once at Mysuru, and during the course of your study period, in case you are having any COVID like symptoms, stop coming to the Shala and isolate yourself, seek appropriate medical advice and treatment and immediately notify the Shala of the same.

    Multiple options to get tested:
    All international passengers must have been advised by the Govt of India to install an app called “Arogya Setu”, the same is advised by the Govt to all the Indian citizens.
    On the app, one can find a lot of information, advice, guidelines, contact numbers, helpline number, hospital and testing centre addresses. Everything related to COVID.
    Ideally that one app should be enough for all your queries, furthermore if you search for “covid testing” on google maps, you will find nearby testing centres. Please ensure they are “ICMR” certified (Indian Council of Medical Research).
    Regarding quarantine and guidelines if someone tests positive, you shall be able to get help from the Govt Helpline number on the app.
    Also, if someone tests positive, we believe the Govt agencies will get in touch with the patient for contacts tracing and further advice. We expect the students to promptly notify the Shala too.
    There is a lot of useful information on (Posters, guidelines, Govt regulations, etc.)

  3. I have a medical condition due to which I cannot be fully vaccinated, can I still apply?
    Sorry, only fully vaccinated students are accepted to study at the Shala. This is for everyone’s safety.
