The ongoing inter-provincial travel restrictions have been extended until 31 October, upon the instructions of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Army Commander General Shavendra Silva said.
Although the quarantine curfew imposed on 20 August to curb the spread of COVID-19 was extended on several occasions and was lifted at 4.00 a.m. on 1 October, the inter-provincial travel restrictions continued to be in operation. Previously, the COVID-19 Prevention Task Force held a meeting under the patronage of President Rajapaksa and the decision to extend the interprovincial travel restrictions until 31 October.
