The Daily Mirror learns that closer to June 14, the situation will be reviewed again and a decision made on the instructions of the health experts.  
The ongoing travel restriction will not be relaxed at any time in between and will be imposed continuously till June 14.  


Like decided earlier, only essential services will be allowed to operate and those leaving their homes have been urged to carry a letter from their employer and state the reason of work.  


Meanwhile Silva said the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccines will be administered in 12 districts from June 8 and will be given to pregnant women and senior citizens.
