PHIs to strictly inspect weddings Featured

Public Health Inspectors have decided to strictly inspect wedding ceremonies and to take legal action against those who violate health guidelines.

Accordingly, all weddings wukk be inspected from today (23) onwards, he said.

PHI Union Head Upul Rohana said they had received a spate of complaints with photographic evidence indicating that health guidelines were violated at recent weddings.

Therefore, the PHI Head said they had decided to take legal action against the organisers and owners of the banquet halls from tomorrow (23) as per provisions laid out in the quarantine act.

“If we allow this to continue, emergence of fresh COVID-19 clusters would be inevitable compelling the health authorities to suspend all wedding ceremonies once again,” he added.
