December 02, Jomsom: In view of the new variant of corona infection Omicron, PCR report or full dose vaccination against corona has been made mandatory to enter Mustang district(Nepal) across the Himalayas.
The Mustang, which is becoming normal after the second wave of corona infection, has seen an increase in the number of domestic and foreign tourists visiting the area recently.
Chief District Officer Netra Prasad Sharma said that the entry of Mustang has been tightened considering the risk of new variants of Coronavirus omikron recently seen in some countries of the world.

A meeting of the District Covid-19 Management Committee has decided that this condition will not apply to those who are permanently residing in Mustang and fully vaccinated staff, teachers, and security personnel.
Due to the news that new variants are being spread in different countries, it has been tightened due to the risk of reaching the Mustang through tourists.
