‘Quarantine centres cannot outsource laundry services’

Assigning the washing of clothes at Galle quarantine centres to external laundry services is prohibited, Galle District Regional Epidemiologist Venura K. Singarachchi said. All quarantine centres should provide their laundry details to the respective health authorities.

The washing and cleaning of used clothes of quarantine centres should be operated by corresponding centres according to health regulations, following high standard scientific laundry methods which will be supervised by the health authorities, the epidemiologist added.

However, he affirmed that clothe washing undertakings of all quarantine centres have been carried out under quality and safe laundry processes. Especially the laundry processes at the quarantine centres maintained by Sri Lanka Navy are handled smartly and neatly, he said.
