The Parliament of Sri Lanka will remain closed for business today (October 26) and tomorrow (October 27), Chief of Staff and Deputy Secretary-General of Parliament Neil Iddawala announced.
As the Parliament premises will be disinfected during these two days, all staff have been instructed not to report for duty.
While operations will resume from Wednesday (October 28), the staff needs to report for duty only if informed by the relevant department heads, Iddawala added.
A Sub-Inspector of the Parliamentary Special Intelligence Unit was recently reported to have contacted COVID-19. His contacts have been directed for PCR testing.
