Growing spread of covid; Tourist centers in Ooty closed

Tourist attractions in the Nilgiris district, including the Botanical Garden, Rose Garden, and Boat House, were closed. The Tamil Nadu government had yesterday banned tourists from traveling to the Nilgiris, Kodaikanal, and Yercaud in view of the growing spread of covid.

The Ooty Botanical Garden, Rose Garden, and Boat House, which are run by the Department of Tourism, were closed on Tuesday. The lake regularly hosts various competitions during the flower festival. For this, the boats were polished. All of these can cause a lot of damage if left unused.

Not only foreign tourists but also local tourists have no access to these places. The ban will continue until further notice. Until yesterday, an e-pass was issued to tourists entering Tamil Nadu.
