Govt also decides to scrap odd-even rule in the Valley

KATHMANDU, July 5: The Districts Administration Offices (DAO) in the Kathmandu Valley – Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur – have decided to allow all kinds of public vehicles to resume their services adopting proper COVID-19 safety protocols from Tuesday.

There will be no odd-even rule for both public and private vehicles from tomorrow.

The DAOs have also decided to let colleges and other institutions conduct pre-scheduled examinations with physical presence of no more than 25 students in a room. In case of large gatherings, the government has directed such institutions to conduct examinations on shifts.

The public vehicles will not be allowed to carry passengers more than their seat capacity. Likewise, both the staff and customers will have to wear face masks compulsorily. There should also be proper facilities for hand sanitizing as well.

Similarly, tempos and blue microbus won’t be allowed to carry more than nine people at a time.
