By Chaturanga Samarawickrama   

A total of 80 persons had been arrested for violating quarantine curfew following an operation carried out on Wednesday in the areas where the quarantine curfew was imposed, the police said.   

Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said yesterday the police quarantine curfew, which has been imposed in 19 Police Divisions in the Gampaha District, would continue until further notice.   
Moreover, 18 motorcycles and one three-wheeler were taken into custody for violating quarantine curfew until last morning.   
He requested the general public in the curfew-imposed areas to limit their movement and to remain at home until further notice. It was reported that a few people violate quarantine laws and causing disturbances to health officials to take people to quarantine centres, he said. “Stern action will be taken against such persons,” he said.   
The vehicles passing through curfew-imposed areas must not stop for whatever reason. Pickup or drop off in those areas is strictly prohibited. He said that there is no need for a curfew pass for people who seek medical treatment from hospitals for illnesses other than suspected COVID-19 symptoms.   


“However, persons with COVID-19 symptoms should stay at home and inform the nearest Police station. The Police will then provide the required medicines along with an ambulance,” he said.   


DIG Rohana also said there will be no restrictions imposed on people who are staying in their houses and engaging in agricultural activities, gardening etc.
