Health authorities today said they are considering allowing returnees to be placed in home quarantine after undergoing a PCR test.

Director General of Health Asela Gunawardena said the number of days an individual is placed in quarantine will be reduced.

He told the COVID-19 task force that a number of options are being considered and decisions will be reached soon.

Among the options being looked into is to allow returnees to complete part of their quarantine process at home.

Dr. Gunawardena also said that the proposal to allow those vaccinated overseas to travel freely in Sri Lanka after a PCR is conducted is being considered.

    There must be clear guidelines as returnees will not want to come and quarantine after taking the full dose of the vaccine and a certificate has been issued by the respective country as the leave given to them will be exhausted on quarantine

    OUR EXPERTS CANNOT STILL FIND A SUITABLE SOLUTION TO THIS QUARANTINE ISSUE. IF ONE HAS GOT THE TWO JABS OF VACCINE WHY TROUBLE THEM?
