Citing a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases in recent days, the three chief district Officers on Sunday, decided to extend the prohibitory orders along with ease.
With the new decision the restrictions have been extended until June 21 and the essential shops will remain open until 11 am in the morning.
“Restrictions will remain the same, with only ease in the timing and some more other essential shops like stationery and book shops,” said Dhundi Prasad Niroula, Chief District Officer of Lalitpur.
“However, unnecessarily movements will be restricted and proper health protocols are expected to be maintained,” Niroula added.
Along with previous allowed grocery, vegetable shops and departmental stores, bookstores and stationeries will be also allowed to open.
Also, the hardware shops will be allowed after 4 pm in the evening.
