Parts of Eheliyagoda and Poojapitiya have been isolated with effect from today (Wednesday), the Government Information Department said.

The Government Information Department said that the Bamunugama Diwanawaththa Grama Niladhari area in the Poojapitiya Police Division and the Moragala Grama Niladhari area in the Eheliyagoda Police Division have been isolated from 5am today.

The isolation order was enforced after coronavirus infected persons were found in the areas.

Police Spokesman, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Ajith Rohana said that the isolation status cannot be lifted in some areas as sub-clusters are emerging and more infected persons are being detected.

“However if the health guidelines are strictly followed the isolation status can be lifted in these areas soon,” he said.

The Police Spokesman said that some people may face some difficulties as a result of the isolation status enforced in these areas.

However, he urged the public in these areas to remain patient and follow the health guidelines. (Colombo Gazette)
