Quarantine curfew to continue further - Army Commander

Army Commander, Lt. Gen. Shavendra Silva said the areas which are currently under the quarantine curfew will continue until further notice and no decision has been been made on lifting the curfew.

This decision was taken due to 103 persons including two persons working at the Minuwangoda Brandix factory being tested positive for the Covid-19 virus on Saturday from the areas currently under the quarantine curfew.

They have all been directed to quarantine centers and their family members are in the quarantine centers which are run by the Army, he said.

He further said that most of the workers at the Minuwangoda garment factory have been quarantined and the rest of them have undergone PCR tests. He said that 10,250 persons are currently in quarantine at 96 quarantine centers operated by the Tri-Forces.
