Residents in the Western Province have been urged not to cross borders as there is a threat of the coronavirus spreading to other areas.
The Western Province is seen as a high-risk area for the coronavirus.
Health Promotion Bureau Director Dr Palitha Karunapema said that residents looking to travel out of the Western Province must do so only if there is an urgent requirement.
“We may not know if we have the virus. And if we associate with others there is the risk of the virus spreading,” he said.
He said that the public have been urged to enforce self-imposed travel restrictions.
