Sri Lanka’s airports will not be re-opened until health authorities certify the health safety of Sri Lankan citizens, says Minister of Tourism Prasanna Ranatunga.

He states that there is a proper plan to combat the COVID-19 pandemic within the country.

However, the airports will only be reopened once there is a 100 percent guarantee on the health safety of the 22 million population country and health authorities issue guidelines on the matter, said Ranatunga.

The Minister expressed these views to journalist at Gampaha area.

Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka Navy is keeping a close watch on persons attempting to enter the country illegally from India, he added.
