The Sri Lanka Police will from today introduce a more efficient sticker system to ensure those carrying out essential services can enter Colombo City amidst travel restrictions.

Police spokesperson DIG Ajith Rohana says 11 stickers have been introduced for specific sectors, with green for health services, light blue for tri-forces and police, purple for private sector essential services, light brown for import, export and manufacturing, yellow for essential service providers, red for distribution of essential goods, orange for media and communication, white for overseas travel, black for funerals, hospitalisation and related activities, grey for prepared meal delivery, and pink for the public sector.

The stickers will mention the number of persons travelling in the vehicle and will be valid until travel restrictions are lifted.

They will be distributed today at entry points to Colombo, including the Negombo Road, Kandy Road, High Level Road, Low Level Road, and Galle Road.
