Government declares a three day public holiday

The Government has declared a three day public holiday from today (Tuesday) to Thursday.

In a special statement, the Government requested the private sector to offer the holiday to their employees as well.

The holiday will however not apply to health staff, banks and all essential services as well as a few other Government sectors.

The holiday has been declared as the number of patients with the coronavirus in Sri Lanka continues to rise. (Colombo Gazette)
