KATHMANDU, June 15: Government offices are operating in two shifts from Monday in line with the Cabinet decision on June 10.  The offices will be run from 8 am to 1 pm in the first shift and from 1 pm to 6 pm in the second shift.

The government had decided to relax the lockdown and operate the government offices, banks, financial institutions, cooperative and insurance service in two shifts from today. The two shifts provision has been adopted so as to lessen the risk of COVID-19. 

The offices to be operated in two shifts include the offices of the educational institutions, non-governmental organisations and the private sector offices as well. 

Similarly, public transport vehicles and the vehicles carrying employees and workers of offices providing private services can also be operated from Monday on an 'odd-even' rule. The vehicles operating their services should strictly follow the health safety protocols.

Although the lockdown has been relaxed, sectors not operating include teaching-learning in school, international and domestic flights except the permitted ones, movement through the international border transits except the designated ones, all kinds of training, seminar, assemblies and gatherings, cinema halls, party palaces, entertainment venues as dance bars and pubs. 

Similarly, public libraries, museums, zoo, spa, saloons and beauty parlour, swimming pool, shopping mall, group sports and playgrounds, all types of places of worship and social gatherings and passenger carrying vehicles, where a large number of people gather or have to be together are also restricted to operate their services.
