The government is currently looking into limiting the repatriation of Sri Lankans who are stuck overseas due to the COVID-19 pandemic, stated Director-General of Health Services Dr. Anil Jasinghe.

He points out that the arrival of a large number of people from foreign countries could be problematic in a context where the issue of Sri Lanka Navy infections has not been resolved as of yet.

Therefore, the government may take a decision to restrict the repatriation of Sri Lankans abroad, Jasinghe said.

Meanwhile, nearly 50 guidelines for carrying out various social activities are set to be released within the upcoming 2 days, the Director-General of Health Services said.

The relevant guideline will inform the general public on action to be followed once the curfew is lifted, he added.
