MYAGDI, March 25: Returnees from neighboring and other third countries will be mandatorily kept in quarantine and isolation in Myagdi for 10 days. 

An all-side meeting held at Myagdi District Administration Office on Wednesday made a 15-point decision and guideline for the preparation, precaution and management to check possible outbreak of the coronavirus. The meeting has made it mandatory for the returnees to stay in quarantine or isolation for 10 days. 

Chief District Officer Ganesh Bahadur Adhikari shared that the arrangement has been made to keep the returnees entering the district in quarantine as the second wave of coronavirus transmission in India could also put Nepal at risk. 

Four Indian workers working at the under-construction Nilgirikhola Hydropower Project of Annapurna Rural Municipality-4, Narchyang were diagnosed with the coronavirus on Tuesday. 

Acting In-charge of the District Public Health Office, Myagdi, Ek Narayan Lamsal shared that the decision regarding quarantine was made after the workers from India were found to have contracted the virus.
