No Staff Member of the Parliament has contracted COVID 19

There is no truth in the rumors circulating on social media that a family member of the Parliament's staff has tested positive with COVID 19.

The circulation of this news was based on a statement made by the Hon. Speaker in response to a concern raised by Parliamentarian Shan Wijayalal De Silva today at Parliament.

Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena emphasized that the office of the Parliament Service Unit under the 'Ministry of Local Government & Provincial Council' in Pelawatta, Battaramulla stated that access for MPs and other individuals were not permitted yesterday due to a suspicion that a relative of an employee has contracted the COVID 19.
