Police Spokesman, Senior Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Ajith Rohana said that it is the responsibility of the public to ensure another travel ban is not enforced.
He said that a travel ban had to be enforced soon after the Sinhala and Tamil New Year for 5 weeks as the public had disregarded the coronavirus health guidelines.
DIG Ajith Rohana said that travelling between provinces is still banned and only essential services are permitted.
As a result, he said that no one can cross provincial boundaries during the extended weekend.
Medical experts have already warned of a fourth wave of the coronavirus in Sri Lanka.
President of the Sri Lanka Medical Association (SLMA) Dr. Padma Gunaratne told Colombo Gazette that the country is heading towards a fourth wave.
She said that a considerable reduction in Covid infections was not observed despite the implementation of travel restrictions earlier. (Colombo Gazette)
