The Old Boys’ Unions of Royal College Colombo and S. Thomas’s College Mount Lavinia yesterday said no one who was subjected to self-quarantine after their participation in the big match had tested positive of COVID-19 but advised the past pupils of the two schools and others to heed the advice and guidance of health authorities in
A joint statement issued by the Old Boys’ Unions of both schools said the following.
“As we end the 14-day period of self-quarantine as responsible citizens following the Royal-Thomian Cricket Match, we confirm that there has thus far not been reports of anyone who has tested positive as a result of having attended the match. However, appreciate this fact with sober reflection and please do not use social media or any other platform to appear triumphed or flippant about it.
As Sri Lankans, we have always stood with our fellow citizens, and we face the scourge of this virulent virus together.
We are, all of us, susceptible to this virus, and we need to heed the advice and guidance of the health authorities of our nation, especially those brave men and women who are risking not only their own health and welfare but also their loved ones to take care of those who are sick and vulnerable at this time”. A spokesman from the S. Thomas’s College Old Boys Union said the statement was to address the fraternity and that was why it was circulated only in the social media.
