Parts of Kandy and Puttalam have been sealed fearing the spread of the coronavirus.
The Army said that Kadayankulama Puttalam and Akurana in Kandy have been sealed.
The Government said that Atulogama in Kalutara had also been sealed.
Residents of these areas have been prevented from leaving their premises and have been ordered to be quarantined for 14 days.
