Three Ukrainian tourists who arrived in Sri Lanka on Monday (28) as part of a pilot project to restart tourism in Sri Lanka have tested positive for COVID-19, the national pandemic task force said. The group of 175 tourists who arrived at the Mattala international airport were welcomed by what appeared to be an unmasked dance item. In footage shown by various media outlets, some of the tourists stepping out of the flight were seen to be inadequately masked, with their mask hanging on their chin.

Government officials said the tour group are currently stationed at an undisclosed hotel where they’re undergoing a 14-day quarantine.

“The tour group will be divided into groups of 10 and will be taken for a 10 days tour around the island,” Public Health Inspector Union Chairman Upul Rohana told EconomyNext. He added that health guidelines were issued to all tourists at the airport.
