Strictly adhere to health guidelines, warns Tourism Minister

Tourism Minister Prasanna Ranatunga yesterday instructed the relevant officials to take steps to ensure that the situation that arose after the Ukrainian tourists visit to the Yala National Park would not be repeated.

The Minister observed that health guidelines which were previously outlined in the pilot project when the country is opened for tourists should be strictly implemented.

He added that the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority and other relevant authorities should pay their utmost attention in this regard. He further said this kind of situation should not crop up after the airport is officially opened at the end of this month. Therefore, he stressed the importance of strictly adhering to the health guidelines.
