The Trincomalee District COVID-19 Task Force Meeting was held under the patronage of Government Agent and District Secretary Saman Dharshana Padikorala at the District Secretariat, yesterday, where he advised the relevant ‘Grama Niladharis’ (GNs) to ensure that there was an uninterrupted supply of essential items and to ensure that residents in their respective areas strictly adhere to the health guidelines.

Thirteen COVID-19 cases have been reported in the Trincomalee District so far, from individuals who had worked in Minuwangoda and Peliyagoda. The District Secretariat advised that officials working in the district must set an example and strictly adhere to the guidelines set out; including the wearing masks, maintaining social distance, regularly washing hands, and restricting unnecessary travelling.

He said the government has made arrangements to provide dry rations to the quarantined families, and that the relevant details will be shared with the Grama Niladhari. He added that police roadblocks have been set up on four main entry points to the district, and that vehicles transporting essential items must not be obstructed.
