COVID-19: Kaduna State residents to be home-bound for 30 Days

Kaduna State government has extended the lockdown in the state for another 30 days, effective from 26th April 2020 in a bid to contain the spread of the coronavirus disease.

The move was necessitated by a recommendation submitted to the state government by Standing Committee on Covid-19, chaired by @DrHadizaBalarabe.

This decision comes on the heels of reported interstate transmission of the virus, the Standing Committee’s evaluation is that measures to protect Kaduna State residents require further strengthening…

Malam Nasir @elrufai has endorsed this evaluation. Quarantine Orders have been reviewed to strengthen the provisions against unauthorised movements. Henceforth, only Wednesdays will be lockdown-free, until the trajectory of Covid-19 infections becomes clearer.

All persons that venture out of their homes for whatever reason must wear facemasks and observe social distancing everywhere they go, in markets and in authorised vehicles. Government is making efforts to provide facemasks for poor and vulnerable residents..

Mobile courts have been empowered by the Quarantine Orders to try violators and impose the prescribed penalties, including fines, imprisonment and forfeiture of vehicles, upon conviction.
