KATHMANDU, Sept 9: A meeting of the Chief District Officers (CDOs) of three districts in Kathmandu Valley on Wednesday decided to ease the prohibitory order issued three weeks ago to curb further spread of COVID-19.

The decision to adopt some measures to relax the lockdown came a few hours before the prohibitory order enforced for the past three weeks is set to expire at midnight today.

The meeting has decided to allow the vehicles to ply the roads on an odd-even basis starting Thursday. This means that vehicles with the even registration number shall be allowed to operate on an even date and those with an odd registration number shall be allowed to operate on odd dates.  

However, the CDO’s have not made any kind of decision related to public passenger vehicles. The market will be allowed to stay open in the morning and evening, according to Administrative Officer at District Administration Office, Kathmandu, Kamal Prasad Pandey.
