This will be effective till 6.00 am on Tuesday (24) and re-imposing of curfew in all districts will be notified later. The Government announces that all the liquor shops in the island should remain closed at all times when curfew is lifted. The Police had been instructed to make facilities for the farming community to engage in their cultivation activities without any disruption. Since there are adequate stocks of food and other essential items, the government advices the public not to engage in panic buying. Facilities for transporting these items have been ensured. Also, measures are in place to supply essential food items to where they are required. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    The government must take adequate steps to control panic buying as it will expose people to corona virus in a big way. Just extending of curfew like this will not help. It will only aggravate the situation.
