Both public and private sector entities in the districts of Colombo, Gampaha, Kalutara and Puttalam should re-commence their work from Monday, May 11, the President's Media Division said.

It said the Heads of all organizations already had been instructed to work out a plan based on their requirements.

"The head of each entity should ensure strict adherence to the prescribed health guidelines issued to control the spread of COVID-19 virus while carrying out their operations.

The private sector entities are requested to open for work at 10.00am daily.

The responsibility to decide who should come to office work and their number lies with head of the each organization.

Buses belonging to Sri Lanka Transport Board and railway carriages can only transport employees of both public and private sectors who are reporting for work, the PMD said.

It said the civilians except those who are essentially required to report to work are requested to remain in their homes as a measure to control the disease.

People are allowed to leave their homes only to purchase essential items such as food and medicines.

Meanwhile, it said the people in areas where the curfew is still in force are premitted to leave their homes based on the last digit of the NIC from Monday, May 11.

"This system does not apply to areas where the curfew is relaxed," the PMD said.

It said the Government expects the public will refrain from gathering unnecessarily even when the curfew is lifted.

"Revival of the economy and the resumption of civilian life will take place while curfew regulations are effective and controlling unnecessary congregation of people as a measure to prevent the spread of the disease is a prime objective of this mechanism.

Conditions included in previous announcements regarding the above matter remain unchanged," it said.

    You are diluting the force of the word "Curfew". When you want to impose a curfew for real people will take it lightly. Call this lockdown by some other name without calling it a curfew. Call it something like "Partial lockdown"
