Madikeri, Feb 27: Corona regulations have obstructed a couple who are supposed to get married in Madikeri on March 1. The couple is already engaged. The bride is a resident of Madikeri while the groom is a resident of Kerala. The couple is anxious and worried over the situation.
As corona cases have spiked in Kerala, there are restrictions on people from Kerala entering into Karnataka. A corona negative report 72 hours prior to their travel is mandatory. The government laboratories will be closed on Sunday. The groom’s party is in quandary without the corona negative reports.
Private laboratories charge Rs 2,500 for each of the corona test. The charges for 15 people to go for the wedding will be Rs 35,000. The groom’s party is unable to spend the required amount.
The bride’s party has requested the district administration to allow the groom’s party to arrive without the Covid negative reports. Though it is a year since the spread of coronavirus, people are afraid to hold programmes such as weddings.
