Accordingly, most of the government offices, private offices and business will remain closed till Thursday.Over two hundred people have been kept under observation, most of them are Sri Lankans retuning from Italy and other foreign countries. Government ordered such people returning from Europe, Iran or South Korea during this month to register at the nearest police station for the benefit of themselves and the community.

Defence ministry said judicial actions will be taken against the persons who fail to comply with this order, under the Quarantine Laws.
