KATHMANDU, July 15: Chief District Officers (CDOs) of the Kathmandu valley are scheduled to meet today to further extend prohibitory orders in the valley. The CDOs of Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur will meet at 1:00 PM today to make decisions regarding the prohibitory order.
The prohibitory order imposed on April 29 is set to expire tonight at 12:00 midnight. Sources said the CDOs are planning to further extend the prohibitory order as the number of COVID-19 cases has seen steady increase after the local administration relaxed prohibitory orders a few weeks ago.
The meeting is expected to discuss the resumption of the operation of long and short distance public transport to and from the valley.
