Govt declares six-day work from home period for public, pvt sectors

DESERTED: Colombo’s usually crowded Galle Face beach front is deserted as Sri Lanka is on non-essential Coronavirus holiday.

ECONOMYNEXT – The government is set to declare a six-day period of working from home for both public and private sectors from March 20 to 27.

“It’s not a holiday, but a period to work from home,” Director General President’s Media Mohan Samaranayake told EconomyNext.

The announcement came in the wake of the Ministry of Health confirming a total of 52 confirmed cases of COVID-19, amid numerous calls for a nationwide lockdown.

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said on Tuesday that there was no need for a lockdown as the situation was largely under control. (Colombo/Mar19/2020)
