‘PCRs on prison officials, inmates today’

The Colombo Prison Hospital will conduct PCR tests on prison officials and prisoners who may have been exposed to COVID-19.

Prisons Rehabilitation Commissioner Chandana Ekanayake said that those who want to undergo the test can do so today.

“Over150 PCR tests will be conducted today on prison officials and prisoners,” he said.

On Sunday (4), a decision was reached to halt visits to the Mahara and Negombo Prisons since a woman tested positive for COVID-19 from Divulapitiya, Minuwangoda.
