Peliyagoda fish market temporarily reopens

The Peliyagoda Fish Market reopened for wholesale trading at 3.00 this morning and closed at 8.00 am.

Health guidelines were adhered to during trading day.

The market was closed on Wednesday after a vendor from Piliyandala, who purchased fish from the Peliyagoda market, tested positive for coronavirus.

However, results of 529 PCR tests conducted on vendors and employees at the Peliyagoda Fish Market returned negative.

Accordingly, a decision was reached to open the market from today. However, retail sales are yet to resume.
