“Further, all tourism facilities of the islands such as on jetties, beaches, eco tourism sites, and water sports activities shall remain suspended from March 16 to March 26. All tour operators may appropriately advise their clients so that tourists intending to travel to Andaman & Nicobar Islands are forewarned and advised to refrain from travelling to the islands,” the letter said further.
