Quarantine curfew extended till Sept 13

The Government has decided to extend the existing Quarantine Curfew until 4 a.m. on September 13.

The decision to extend the Quarantine Curfew was taken during the virtual meeting of the Special Committee on COVID-19 Control chaired by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday.

“The lockdown will continue for another seven day period. Recommendations determine that progress will be made via the ongoing Vaccination Drive in the interim to curb the current spike. Please adhere to the regulations, use this time to get vaccinated,” Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella tweeted. A ten-day islandwide quarantine curfew was imposed on August 20 and it was extended till September 6 last week. The Committee, after analyzing the situation, decided to continue the restrictions until September 13.

However, all essential services and vaccination programmes will continue uninterrupted.
