Weddings in Sri Lanka are about to take a new shape from what we knew it has a few months ago. The country today announced that it has lifted the ban on weddings which was put in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It also announced some new guidelines regarding weddings in the country: only 100 guests will be allowed at weddings and they must all stay a metre part and wear masks – including the couple. “Guests should not be allowed to kiss, hug or shake hands,Greeting each other should be done without any touching. Religious gatherings remain banned while only the bereaved family are allowed at funerals.
Offices have been allowed to open with reduced staff to carry out essential services, but the capital Colombo and the neighbouring district of Gampaha, where the main international airport is located, remain under a 24-hour curfew.
