All pharmacies, supermarkets ordered to close until further notice

Acting IGP C.D. Wickremaratne today instructed all super markets and pharmacies except for state-owned pharmacies to close until further notice.

Police said the decision was taken as it was reported that some supermarkets were open for consumers despite being only permitted to operate home-delivery of essential commodities.

However, the police said pharmacies were allowed to operate home-delivery services.

All the OICs across the country had been advised to carry out the order.
