Newly appointed Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella has instructed to set up COVID-19 preventive committees in all ministries.
The minister said this during a Zoom discussion with Cabinet Secretaries yesterday (17).
Accordingly, the committee should be set up at the institutional level under one chief officer.
When an employee of an institution becomes ill or inconvenienced, the committee will take action in accordance with government health guidelines.
In addition, these committees will oversee the proper implementation of the regulations issued by the Government to control COVID-19 in each institution.
