It has come to our attention that recent reports about a Mobitel office shutdown due to COVID-19 has been circulated on various social media platforms.

As suspicion arose of a person who has associated with another person who in turn had exposure to a COVID 19 patient (third circle) had visited the WAD Ramanayake Mawatha branch, Colombo 02, we have taken necessary actions and have temporarily closed the branch for complete disinfection as a precautionary measure.
