Island-wide travel restrictions extended until June 21-Shavendra Silva

Army Commander General Shavendra Silva says that a decision has been taken to further extend the islandwide travel restrictions until June 21 (Monday).

The travel restrictions, which are currently in effect across the island, had been initially extended until June 07 and once again extended until 4.00 a.m. on June 14.

However, it has now been decided that travel restriction would not be lifted on June 14 and that instead it would continue until 4.00 a.m. on June 21. 

The Army Commander, however, noted that several services including essential services will be permitted during the travel restriction period. 

Accordingly, apparel factories, major construction sites, weekly village fair (Sathi Pola), agricultural and organic fertilizer production activities will be allowed to function under health guidelines.
