The decision was taken at a meeting of the Crisis Management on Sunday, according to Kathmandu Chief District Officer Kali Prasad Parajuli.

Concerned municipalities in charge of district entry points, according to Parajuli, should set up a health desk for the checkup and mobilize workers to do so.

If anyone tests positive in the exam, they must take a PCR test for the virus, and only those who test negative will be able to participate.
