Co-Cabinet Spokesman Dr. Ramesh Pathirana says that no official discussion has been held regarding the closure of the country during the upcoming festive season.
He was speaking at a media briefing on Cabinet decisions held this morning (30).
The Cabinet Spokesman said that the government has no intention of locking down the country again.
He added that although the country had reopened after a successful vaccination drive that did not mean that the disease was completely under control in the country.
“No one in this country is safe until every person in this country is safe,” he said, urging the public to ensure that their safety is at the forefront of the upcoming festive season and to follow health guidelines at all times.
