PHIs to be strict on weddings; legal action against guideline violators

The Public Health Inspectors have decided to inspect weddings and take legal action against the violators of health guidelines.

PHI Union Head Upul Rohana said they had received a spate of complaints with evidence pertaining to violation of health guidelines at weddings.

“Accordingly, we deployed our officers to inspect the wedding celebrations where they witnessed poor behaviour of participants violating health guidelines. The PHIs had to issue warnings and allow to carry on,”

“However, the situation seems to be getting worse and therefore, we decided to take legal action against the organisers and owners of the institutions from tomorrow (23) as per the provisions of the quarantine act,” the PHI Head stressed.

“If we allowed this to continue, emerging of COVID-19 clusters would be inevitable compelling the health authorities to suspend all weddings once again,” he added. Thus, the PHI Head urged the organisers to be more responsible and conduct weddings complying with health guidelines.
