Shoppers maintain healthy distance

With the temporary lifting of curfew in most districts this morning, Sri Lankan citizens were seen adhering to public health guidelines while shopping for essential items.

Barring a few incidents where quarantine regulations were violated, the public in several districts were seen gathering at grocery shops and supermarkets to purchase essential items, before the curfew was re-imposed. They were seen forming lengthy queues outside stores, managing to maintain a healthy distance between each person, with minimal supervision.

The island-wide curfew imposed on Friday was temporarily lifted this morning, with the exception of eight districts. The curfew was re-imposed by 2 pm this afternoon in Colombo, Gampaha, Puttalam, Mannar, Vavuniya, Mullaitivu, Kilinochchi and Jaffna districts.
