PDF File Size: 275 KB | Download   
On 10 August, the Government of Nepal (GoN) came up with new COVID-19 containment measures. As recommended by the COVID-19 Crisis Management Centre (CMCC), the Council of Ministers decided to defer the resumption of passenger flights and long-distance bus services for 15 days (previously scheduled for the 17 August). The Government has decided to allow local governments to enforce lockdowns depending on their determination of risk. Movement of people from districts with 200 or more active COVID-19 cases to other places has been restricted and the approval of district authorities will be mandatory for those who must travel outside their district. More than 14 districts across the country with increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases have issued prohibitory orders. In Kathmandu Valley, the rule is applicable for travel outside the three Valley districts of Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur. The GoN has decided to keep international borders closed until 16 September, while 10 border points will be open for the rescue of Nepali migrants (reduction from the previous 20 open border points). Restrictions on public gatherings and parties in hotels will continue. Odd-even number plate road access has been imposed on both private and public vehicles, and eateries will only be allowed to provide take-away service.

Citing increasing COVID-19 transmission, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) has appealed to all concerned parties to strictly implement the ‘Public Health Guideline’ issued by the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP), MoHA’s ‘Security Guideline’ and other relevant instructions and circulations issued by the Government. MoHA has directed all security agencies and District Administration Offices (DAOs) to contain, control and respond to COVID-19 infections. Nearly 395,000 people have been detained for not wearing masks in public. They were advised and several were fined by the agencies and DAOs. So far, nearly 7,600 vehicles and 19,400 passengers attempting to enter Kathmandu Valley without permission have been turned away at check points. Approximately 137,000 vehicles violating the odd-even number plate rule were taken aside and held while nearly 5,300 vehicles were penalized for disobeying odd-even number system.
