Hatton town isolated

The Hatton Town has been declared as an isolated area with immediate effect, the National operations Centre for the Prevention of COVID-19 announced.

Head of the Centre Army Commander Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva said that the Hatton Town will remain an isolated area until further notice.

A decision was taken to isolate the area as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, he said.

Last week, fish stalls in the Hatton Town were temporarily closed after two individuals from a fish stall had visited the Peliyagoda fish market, where a new coronavirus cluster has been detected.
