Shimla celebrates New Year

 Saturday, January 1, 2022 


The imposition of restrictions in some states following the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 has proved to be a blessing in disguise for the tourism industry of Shimla. The hotels in the capital city are packed with nearly 100 per cent occupancy.

Tourists in a large number have arrived in the city to ring in New Year and local hoteliers are doing tremendous business. The famous tourist resort of Kufri, besides the Mall Road and The Ridge are overcrowded. However, local people are a bit scared as tourists have a free entry to the state and hotel employees are working under the lurking fear of contracting Covid.

“The hotel occupancy in Shimla is about 100 per cent and the standard operating procedures (SOPs) are being followed. Thermal screening of tourists is being done, rooms are being sanitised before allotment and we are following no mask no service policy,” said Ashwani Sood, an office-bearer of the Shimla Hotel and Restaurant Association
