This is to inform all that the movement of people and vehicles out of the two gewogs of Merak and Sakteng in Trashigang have been stopped with immediate effect.

The event is a stark reality that the wave is pressing hard from all corners. As the pandemic peaks, we would like to urge every single person to cooperate and protect yourself and your family from the disease.
Now is the real test of time. Our King has not paused for a second to shield the country from the threat. If we unite in our thoughts and actions, we will be able to offer His Majesty a much deserved respite, even if it is for a day.
