Operations of Bodyline apparel factories of MAS Holdings in Horana and Agalawatte will begin as soon as health authorities give clearance for it, the management said yesterday.   


“We will re-commence operations in both facilities only once the plants are fully sanitised and clearance received from health authorities,” a statement from the company said. 


“Wellbeing of employees is the number one priority at Bodyline and despite having stringent health and safety protocols, we have unfortunately experienced positive COVID cases in 2 of our 3 facilities- Horana (68 cases), Agalawatte (01 case). 


In each of these instances, we have acted immediately to close the facilities, carry out aggressive contact tracing and effectively conduct PCR tests in collaboration with government health authorities,” a Bodyline statement said.
The Bodyline management assured that all affected employees would be paid their full salaries without any deductions for the days they are absent from work. 


“We have also made arrangements to support their families by providing packs of dry rations and other essential amenities. In order to provide dedicated care for our affected employees we have obtained approvals to set up two care centers. 


These centers will be fully funded by Bodyline and managed and operated by government health authorities. The centers will be equipped with necessary medical and accommodation facilities and will primarily take care of asymptomatic positive cases that do not require significant medical intervention,” the statement said.
