Home delivery services during the curfew period: Colombo and suburbs
The only way to combat the Covid-19 plague is to stay inside your homes. So let us help by using only home delivery services such as these for our day-to-day needs.
As curfew was lifted for a couple of hours in Colombo, Gampaha and Puttalam districts on Monday 23 March 2020, many of us had to stand in hours long queues outside supermarkets, wishing that there was groceries delivery during curfew services to buy essential household items.
Such services prevent the need for people to get out during a time when we all need to practice social distancing and social isolation. The good news is that there are some companies in Colombo and its suburbs providing groceries delivery during curfew services, including gas and medicine.
We did the leg-work for you and rounded up some of these service providers. Do keep in mind though, that we have not tested the efficiency of these companies.
