Two employees of a tourist hotel in Dadalla, Galle, where the English cricketers are staying during the first test match between the two countries at the Galle International Cricket Stadium, have been tested positive with COVID-19.

The Galle District Health Services Director's office said that the two employees, who work in the hotel kitchen are residents of Kapumulla and Weligama.

The duo was found infected with COVID-19 through PCR tests conducted yesterday among the hotel staff and the visiting English cricketers.

The two employees are to be admitted to the hospital today. (D.G. Sugathapala)

    There should be absolutely no fear sir nice they will be from the Minuwangoda and Peliyagoda'identified cluster'! And also the new 'bubble' system adapted by the big 'sars' will further protect the nation and also the tourists. A 'bubble' happened to pass me yesterday escorted by the 'forces'.

    Even more reason not to open the airports! Our hotel industry staff should not be put at risk!
