Curfew in Colombo, Gampaha and Kalutara to continue until further notice

Colombo, Gampaha and Kalutara districts have been marked as high risk zones for the spread of COVID-19. The government said that curfew will continue in these districts until further notice.

Health Authorities have observed that following the lifting of curfew this morning, huge crowds had gathered near shops posing  a threat to the government’s efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Due to this fact, the government has allowed Sathosa and all supermarkets to operate mobile supermarkets and delivery services to the public during curfew times.

Further, a task force headed by Basil Rajapaksa has been appointed to ensure people get their essentials during curfew.
