Movement between districts barred
It has been decided to strictly restrict movement between districts to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, as per the instructions of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Accordingly, crossing district boundaries will be banned except for essential services and the distribution of goods.
The President made this decision at a meeting held with the National Operations Centre for Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak (NOCPCO) at the Presidential Secretariat today (01).
Along with the decision to bar travel between districts, President Rajapaksa took several more decisions to control the epidemic without hindering the daily life of the public and the economy.
