The curfew will be reinforced countrywide round the clock on Sunday and Monday (24 and 25) and the relaxation of curfew for 15 hours in 23 Districts except Colombo and Gampaha will be effective from 5.00am to 8.00pm from Tuesday onward, the government announced yesterday.   

In Colombo and Gampaha Districts, the curfew will continue to be in force unchanged until further notice.   
Meanwhile, the Police Department has charged 18,496 individuals for violating the curfew regulations and 6,991 of them have been convicted under the Quarantine and Prevention of Disease Ordinance.
