Colombo, Dec 8 (DailyMirror) – As the festive season is just around the corner, the regional Public Health Inspectors have been informed to take legal action against violators of health guidelines, PHIU Head Upul Rohana said.
He told media that they would be strict on vendors who sell goods violating health protocols and the consumers who tend to gather in large numbers.
“Legal action is not only to be taken against vendors but also the owners and employees of business outlets who are engaged in businesses violating COVID protocols,” he said.
“Though Omicron poses a threat to the world, people in Sri Lanka seem to be taking the situation for granted. They have almost forgotten health and safety measures, which could be detrimental,” he pointed out.
Upul Rohana insisted that people follow health guidelines as the upcoming festive season could be crucial in deciding the fate of the country’s future with the threat of Omicron.
