Public events such as assemblies, gatherings, and festivals have been prohibited in Dhading district keeping in mind the risk of a second wave of coronavirus infection.

Separate meetings of the Covid-19 Crisis Management Centre and District Security Committee took the decision to urge all to adopt precautionary measures. With the increase in Covid-19 cases in neighbouring India, Nepal is also at a risk of facing increased cases.

A festival organised by the district chapter of the Federation of Small and Medium Enterprises in Gajuri Bazaar of Gajuri Rural Municipality of the district from March 25 to April 07 has been postponed indefinitely.

Similarly, festivals organised on the occasion of Phagu Purnima or Holi by various organisations have also been cancelled.

Furthermore, the meeting also urged all local levels, health offices, and district hospitals to remain prepared, like before, to track, test, isolate cases and quarantine contacts, as and when required.

The Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) has urged everyone to adopt safety measures and to refrain from organising seminars, workshops, and gatherings to contain the potential resurgence of Covid-19.
