Lagos State threatens to revert to full lock-down

The Lagos State government has reviewed some of the protocols being used to curb the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday at the Government House in Lagos, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced that the government would be relaxing the measures in the coming days.

He explained that this included the approval to reopen religious centres in the next two weeks from June 19th and 21st, although it would come with some conditions.

For places of worship with large crowds, the governor insisted that worshippers at such centres must not exceed 500 during a session.

According to Sanwo-Olu, only Friday and Sunday services should be held for now and all other regular services, including night vigils, must be put on hold.

He also announced that all banks can now begin full operation from 7am-6pm, adding that government officers on Levels 13 and 14 should resume work while those on Levels 1 to 12 would stay back home until further notice.
