LAGOS State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has lifted the ban on tertiary institutions, setting resumption date for schools in the state at September 14, 2020.
He made this known on Saturday at a press conference on the 17th update on Coronavirus, which held at Lagos House, Marina. The briefing also witnessed the launch of COVID-19 Care Pack, which contains medications, hand sanitizer, face masks and handy medical equipment that could be used to check temperature.
The Care Pack is to be given to those who have been confirmed positive of the COVID-19 free of charge and who prefer home-based care.
Recall that all schools from basic to tertiary institutions were shut on the order of the government, following the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The governor said primary and secondary schools would re-open from September 21, 2020, adding however, that the decision is subject to a review of ongoing modelling of the state’s response to the pandemic.
The Governor also announced that restaurants are permitted to open for in-dining services, and they must ensure the maintenance of a 50 percent maximum occupancy at any point in time.
He added that,“Social clubs and recreational centres that have registered trustees have also been permitted to open, on the condition that they have applied for and obtained a Provisional Safety Compliance Certificate through the registration portal of the Lagos State Safety Commission: www.lasgsafetyreg.com.
