In all other districts, curfew will be lifted at 6.00am tomorrow (30) and will be re-imposed at 2.00pm on the same day.
Traveling to and from all districts is completely prohibited except for the purpose of providing essential services.
Those who misuse regulations introduced with the aim of continuing essential services will severely be dealt with according to the law, the PMD said.
Since the sole purpose of these measures is to ensure the well-being of the people of this country in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak, the government requested the public to strictly follow the guidelines in a responsible manner.
