Quarantine mandatory to enter the valley

Kathmandu: Those who enter the Kathmandu Valley now have to live in quarantine or home isolation.

The Chief District Officers of all the three districts of the Kathmandu Valley have issued an order on Monday stating that as the corona infection is on the rise, those entering the Kathmandu Valley must now live in the quarantine and home isolation prescribed by the local level.

A joint meeting of the chief district officers of Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur on Monday decided to impose a one-week ban in the Kathmandu Valley from April 30 after a new variant of the coronavirus spread rapidly.

It is stated that activities other than urgent ones will be stopped during the ban period.
