The new guidelines also include;

"Guests should not be allowed to kiss, hug or shake hands," said the latest health ministry rules seen by AFP. "Greeting each other should be done without any touching."

The country already imposed a nationwide curfew which was effective on March 20, 2020 that ruled out public gatherings.

However, the restrictions have been eased in several districts that are not considered as high risk. Religious gathering still on hold while only bereaved family are allowed at a funeral, offices have been allowed to open with limited staffs to carry out essential services but the Colombo and the neighboring districts of Gampaha, where the main international airport is located remain under a 24 hours curfew.

There are total of 1,055 cases reported in SRI LANKA and 9 deaths recorded.
