The curfew in 19 districts will be lifted at 6 am on Thursday 9th and be in effect until 4 pm the same day.

However, the curfew in Colombo, Gampaha, Kalutara, Puttalam, Kandy and Jaffna districts will continue until further notice.

Traveling to and from all districts has been completely prohibited except for the purpose of providing essential services, the PMD said.
