Information Minister Yuba Raj Khatiwada said that colleges and schools will remain closed for now. Also, public gatherings, parties,zoo, gymnasium, religious functions and parks are banned so far.

The lockdown was first imposed on March in an attempt to curb the spread of the virus. It was renewed several times.
