Chief District Officer Shrawan Kumar Timilsina said the operation of public vehicles has been restricted up to 26 August keeping into consideration the rise in the rate of coronavirus infection. The district administration office however has allowed operation of businesses and other purchase and sales activities in the stipulated time until further notice.
The move was taken to contain the virus which was spreading due to the rampant rise in the crowd and mobility of people in the populated Dhulikhel, Panauti, Banepa, Panchkhal, and Namobuddha municipalities. The limited business activities are allowed from 7.00 to 9.00 am in the morning and from 4.00 to 6.00 pm in the evening but full adherence to the safety protocol was a must.
