Colombo, August 10 (DailyMirror) – The inter-province travel restriction will be strictly monitored from today and no one will be allowed to cross provinces other than essential and health workers, Army Commander General Shavendra Silva told Daily Mirror a short while ago.
He said following discussions, it had also been decided to limit the number of attendees to a wedding to 50 guests, from the 150 proposed earlier.
In addition, the Health Ministry will release a set of new health guidelines and restrictions today late afternoon.
The General said there had still been no decision on a lockdown or islandwide travel restrictions. (Jamila Husain)
