Valley CDOs Holding Meeting, Prohibitory Order Likely To Be Extended

Chief District Officers (CDOs) of the three districts in the Kathmandu Valley are holding a meeting today to decide on the extension and form of the ongoing prohibitory order enforced since 29 April to prevent spread of the infection of the SARS-CoV-2.

The prohibitory order has been extended for three times so far and the last extension expires on June 3.

Prem Prasad Bhattarai, Bhaktapur CDO, said that the meeting will dwell on whether to relax the order, extend it or make it stricter.

He said no conclusion was made to relax the restriction to open groceries and let construction work resume.

A meeting of the Valley CDOs on May 25 had decided to extend the restriction till June 3 and make it stricter by not allowing groceries to open and construction works continue. As per the meeting, only dairies, meat shop, vegetable and gas shops were allowed to open till 9 am.
