Hilton Colombo has temporarily suspended operations after one of its employees has tested positive for COVID-19, the Daily Mirror learns.

When contacted, the hotel confirmed that it had temporarily halted operations since Friday but failed to share more details. The hotel is expected to release a statement shortly. Health officers from the Colombo Municipal Council confirmed that a positive COVID-19 patient was found from the area where the hotel was located but could not confirm whether it was from the hotel premises. Further investigations are ongoing.

The Daily Mirror learns that Galle Face Hotel has also temporarily suspended operations. The area PHI has informed the hotel to halt operations and all hotel staff will be subjected to a PCR test today.

Shangri La hotel has also been informed by the PHI to cancel some key events scheduled to take place at the hotel but it is not confirmed if this is due to the detection of a positive patient or as a precautionary measure. The hotel is expected to release a statement shortly. (JAMILA HUSAIN)

    What a lot of stress is being caused to people simply because government is saying that we don’t have community spread! I feel sorry for couples who had weddings planned for this weekend in the above hotels.
