Peliyagoda fish market to close for 3 days

The Fish Traders Union says that the Peliyagoda fish market is to be closed for three days from tomorrow (22).

The decision is taken to curb the spread of Covid-19 within the market premises, the union says.

It was reported that a fish vendor from Piliyandala, who was identified as a Covid-19 patient yesterday, had visited the Peliyagoda fish market.

The union said owners and employees of 154 stalls in the Peliyagoda fish market will be subject to PCR testing tomorrow.
