There has been a circulation of false news that a member of Security staff from the Prime Minister’s Office has tested positive.

It is with complete responsibility that we confirm this news to be false, no internal security member from the Prime Minister’s Office, Temple Trees or the Wijerama Residence has tested positive.

It is in fact a member of the external unit of the Prime Minister’s advanced security division that has been diagnosed positive with COVID-19. The respective individual has not reported to work since the 17th of October, 2020.

We request all Sri Lankan citizens to remain cautious, and vigilant during these challenging times and not fall victim to any such false news.
