The government had earlier announced that testing would be stopped in airports and railway stations from March 1.

The earlier order dated February 18 regarding the discontinuation of mandatory COVID-19 testing at airports and railway stations in Assam with effect from March 1 has been kept in abeyance until further orders.

“COVID vaccination has started and it will take some time for a large segment of the population to be vaccinated and it is now essential that all precautions continue to be taken to contain the spread of Novel Coronavirus,” the state government said in a statement.
