Police Media Spokesman Senior Superintendent of Police Nihal Thalduwa says Police Stations will not issue a curfew pass during the period of quarantine curfew.
Speaking to media at the Government Information Department, SSP Thalduwa said they decided that Police Stations will not issue curfew permits for practical reasons, despite many individuals contacting the nearest Police Station in this regard.
However SSP Thalduwa said the Police have been advised by the Inspector General of Police to inspect documents in hand and supervise the movement of persons during curfew.
Meanwhile, SSP Nihal Thalduwa added quarantine curfew passes to transport goods via mobile vendors, can be obtained from the relevant District and Provincial Secretaries, adding that any curfew permit obtained during a prior lockdown can be renewed via the same officer as well.
He also stated that individuals travelling for the funeral of a close family member can inform Police at relevant checkpoints and proceed.
The Police Media Spokesman said individuals travelling for employment reasons can use their employee ID as a pass or use a letter issued by the place of employment.
SSP Thalduwa also stated that persons travelling for medical reasons are allowed to travel during these ten-days.
