With the temporary lifting of curfew in most districts this morning, Sri Lankan citizens were seen adhering to public health guidelines while shopping for essential items. 
Barring a few incidents where quarantine regulations were violated, the public in several districts were seen gathering at grocery shops and supermarkets to purchase essential items, before the curfew was re-imposed. They were seen forming lengthy queues outside stores, managing to maintain a healthy distance between each person, with minimal supervision.
The island-wide curfew imposed on Friday was temporarily lifted this morning, with the exception of eight districts. The curfew was re-imposed by 2 pm this afternoon in Colombo, Gampaha, Puttalam, Mannar, Vavuniya, Mullaitivu, Kilinochchi and Jaffna districts.(KAK)

    It's so sad, this is not our usual behaviour. We stand so close in bus and trains it was a fun time may be it will never come again.

    wonder how many of the elite and hangers-on of especially SLPP politicians will be allowed to break violate the curfew and do as they please.

    Some of the online delivery companies are ruthlessly exploiting the situation by charging absurd, exorbitant prices even for essential items under price control under the guise of delivery.
