Curfew, which was imposed island-wide at 10pm yesterday, was lifted at 4am today.

Curfew will be effective only between 10.00pm to 4.00am daily in all the districts in the island, until further notice.

Guidelines prescribed by the health authorities to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 should strictly be followed during the operations of factories, institutes, offices and shops as well as public transportation, issuing a press release yesterday, the President’s Media Divison stated.

These guidelines include disinfection, wearing face masks, washing hands from time to time and maintaining social distance.

The release adds that heads of state and private sector entities are free to decide on the number and categories of workers to be called for work in consideration of the nature of the services they provide under health guidelines.

The Government requests the public to adhere to health recommendations while engaging in their daily activities even after the curfew is relaxed.
