Authorities in Rupandehi have decided to close all educational institutions in view of the recent surge in Covid-19 cases in the district.
A meeting of Chief District Officer Aashman Tamang and chiefs of all 16 local units on Sunday decided to shut down schools starting today.
“We have also reached a decision to postpone all pre-scheduled examinations and halt all ongoing examinations until further notice,” said Tamang.
The meeting has also decided to enforce odd-even rule for vehicles running inside the district from Tuesday.
