Steps have been taken to obtain facilities of Hotels in Colombo to facilitate expatriates arriving in the country to spend their mandatory quarantine period, Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ruwan Wijayamuni said today.

He said the Cinnamon Red Hotel in Colombo has already been taken as a paid isolation center while discussions are in progress to obtain facilities of the Best Western Elyon Hotel as well.

He said the decision was taken as all the quarantine centres in the country were full by now.
