Curfew in other districts of the island except in the districts of Colombo, Gampaha, Kalutara and Puttalam will only be effective from 8.00 pm to 5.00am everyday till Wednesday, the 06th of May.
The curfew which will be imposed at 8.00pm on Wednesday, the 06th of May will continue till 5.00am on May 11th.

 

While the curfew is in force in the districts of Colombo, Gampaha, Kalutara and Puttalam, the resumption of civilian life and state and private sector activities will begin from Monday, 11th May, President’s Media Division said.

In order to ensure return to normalcy in civilian life and to revive the economy including continuous provision of essential services in these districts, both public and private sector entities should resume their work from Monday, 11th May. Heads of institutes are advised to make necessary arrangements taking into consideration of the required number of employees to run their organizations. Head of each entity should ensure strict adherence to the guidelines issued by the Director General of Health Services and other health authorities to control the spread of COVID – 19 virus while carrying out their operations.

The responsibility to decide who should come to office work and their number lies with head of the each state organization including Departments, Corporations and Boards.  The private sector entities are requested to open for work at 10.00am daily.

As a measure to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus the public must refrain from unnecessarily coming to roads and gathering at various other places. Buses belonging to Sri Lanka Transport Board and railway carriages can only transport employees who are reporting for work.

Civilians except those who are essentially required to report to work are requested to remain in their homes. People are allowed to leave their homes only to purchase essential items such as food and medicines. Corona prevention health recommendations should strictly be followed at each instance. Curfew passes issued by the Police authorities are valid only if the driver and passengers wear facemasks. 

Curfew in other districts of the island except in the districts of Colombo, Gampaha, Kalutara and Puttalam will only be effective from 8.00 pm to 5.00am everyday till Wednesday, the 06th of May.
The curfew which will be imposed at 8.00pm on Wednesday, the 06th of May will continue till 5.00am on May 11th.

    Hans perlee Friday, 01 May 2020 10:17 PM

    Ramal Friday, 01 May 2020 10:24 PM

    The normalisation of livelihoods and institutional operations in Colombo etc., from May 11, while police curfew is still in effect, is a joke - how on earth anything is possible with a curfew on. Are you going to serve mosquitoes and flies?

    people living in areas the curfew will be in force are already undrgoing many hardships. People will get killed from other serious sickness and hunger.

    WHAT A DRAMA. DAY DREAM

    SIMON AIYA Friday, 01 May 2020 11:15 PM

    Blatant disregard for the people who have been trapped indoors for several weeks with the false promise of lifting curfew at the end of each week until now. What about the ID system that was supposed to be put into play from the 4th of May? Just feels like we are being hoodwinked all the time.

    Anonymous Friday, 01 May 2020 11:16 PM

    So are we allowed to cross districts during these days?

    Whatever the story is, it is extension of curfew and the misery continues from 23/03/20 to an oscillating date of 11/05/20. The New normal.

    Your safety, health and protection are your responsibility. The government cannot keep on safeguarding you forever. Get out of the cocoon and start working.

    Mad cow Saturday, 02 May 2020 12:06 PM

    Bullshit... Wait for the 10th and hear the breaking news that curfew has been extended.

    Odin Saturday, 02 May 2020 12:23 PM

    ..and coming closer to 11th the date will automatically shift to 18th, eh? Wonder who gives the dead ropes!

    Thor Saturday, 02 May 2020 12:25 PM

    And the postman has already delivered my held up letters!!!!!!!!!

    Gamunu Saturday, 02 May 2020 12:53 PM

    Something that needs to be done very carefully. It is also necessary to maintain good health habits too .

    Gotta Saturday, 02 May 2020 03:36 PM

    When in June is this 11th may ? .

    Dhaya Saturday, 02 May 2020 03:39 PM

    I don't understand why to hurry so quicky to release the curfew when still cases are identified. 2nd way could be disastrous. The government needs to rethink this decision.

    Sam Saturday, 02 May 2020 06:08 PM

    Private company workers want to get back to work to safeguard there companies and earn money. Public company employees would much rather stay at home and be paid for doing nothing, it is much more convenient for them than going all the way to Colombo to do nothing. It is easy to see who is employed where when reading the comments.
