KATHMANDU, JUNE 28
The administration authorities of Kathmandu valley have decided to further prolong the ongoing Covid-19 prohibitory orders, that is set to expire today.
The Chief District Officers of Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur have decided to permit public vehicles with more than 25 seats to operate in odd-even system from 6 am till 7 pm inside the valley.
Similarly, grocery (food) shops will be allowed to open throughout while other shops can operate from 11 am till 6 pm.
Likewise, wedding related events must be carried out within the house in attendance of no more than 15 people.
Last week, officials had decided to significantly relax the lockdown allowing private vehicles to ply the roads based on the odd-even basis while also granting permit to let several shops, that were earlier not allowed to operate, run by designating alternative days for different stores.
The number of Covid-19 cases is currently declining in the country as well as in Kathmandu valley. Despite that, the risk of infection has not yet subsided.
