Several attendees of the big match held between S. Thomas' College and Royal College last weekend have gone into self- quarantine after a SriLankan Airlines First Officer who attended the matches tested positive for the COVID-19, the Daily Mirror learns.

Several companies, last night also informed its employees who attended the matches to self- quarantine for 14 days and not to report to work.

SriLankan Airlines, in a statement said that upon learning of the First Officer's medical condition last evening, all crew members who had come in contact with him during the last 14 days have been put under self-quarantine with immediate effect. (JAMILA HUSAIN)
