KATHMANDU, JUNE 20
The Chief District Administration Officers of the three districts of Kathmandu valley are scheduled to meet today afternoon in preparation for a 'smart lockdown'.
The Covid-19 prohibitory orders enforced by the districts are set to expire on Monday, June 21.
The CDOs are likely to propose another extension of the prohibitory period, albeit with further relaxations over the restrictive measures during the meeting.
A decision over whether or not to allow private vehicles to ply based on the odd-even system, or some other modality of vehicle operation, is also likely to come from the meeting.
Authorities have started to ease the restrictions in Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur with the declining number of coronavirus infections, of late.
Earlier, three DAOs had eased up the restrictions in several sectors including Grocery stores, books and stationery stores, online delivery services, agriculture-related activities, construction, visa application and electric and hardware stores.
District officials had enforced prohibitory orders from April 29 following the surge in Covid-19 cases in Kathmandu Valley with the advent of the second wave of coronavirus pandemic.
