Apr 24, Colombo: Sri Lanka has re-imposed the 14-day quarantine for the visitors to the country as number of Covid-19 cases sharply increased following the New Year celebrations.

The Quarantine period for visitors, returnees, & tourists to Sri Lanka from abroad will be extended for 14 days, said the Head of the National Operations Center for Prevention of COVID-19 Outbreak (NOCPCO) Army Commander General Shavendra Silva said.

“The quarantine period for visitors was reduced to seven to ten days. Under these circumstances the quarantine period will be extended again to 14 days. Health officials announce it,” General Shavendra Silva said.
