The traffic police will be consistently monitoring school transport services once schools reopen to ensure that health safety guidelines are adhered to, Police Media Spokesperson DIG Ajith Rohana.

In addition, it has been decided to conduct random rapid antigen tests for COVID-19 on drivers and assistants of school transport services from tomorrow (January 25) onwards, the DIG added.

Meanwhile, the police have arrested nine persons who were not wearing face masks within the past 24 hours.

Accordingly, a total of 2,734 individuals have been arrested for violating quarantine laws from October 30, 2020, to date.

Legal action has reportedly been taken against 2,600 of the arrested persons thus far.

DIG Rohana further said that inspections are being carried out to ensure that institutions are operating in accordance with the quarantine law.

Further, rapid antigen testing is continued in public places, long-distance buses, and at weekly fairs, he added.
