On Wednesday, 23rd December, a partial lockdown was imposed on Kwara state to curtail the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
According to Razak Raji, the Vice Chairman of the state Technical Committee on COVID-19, the lockdown will take effect from Thursday, 24th December 2020.
“Appropriate use of face mask in public places is mandatory.
“Concerts/carnivals/clubbing are not allowed until further notice. Worship centres are not to allow congregations exceeding 50 percent of the maximum capacity of the venue. This is to allow for physical distancing.
“Other gatherings (formal and informal) exceeding 50 people are disallowed. Therefore, the protocol of ‘No face mask, no entry’ must apply at all public places.”
He added that the civil servants in the state particulary should work from home with the exception of essential workers like those in the health sector.
“Civil servants are to work from their homes. The only exemptions are essential workers, especially in the health sector. Virtual meetings are encouraged.
“Transporters are to enforce all COVID-19 protocols, including proper use of face mask by drivers and passengers. Appropriate sanctions will apply to defaulters.
“Security agencies will deploy all lawful means to enforce these protocols. Defaulters are deemed to constitute dangers to public health. Provisions of the Kwara State Infectious Diseases Regulations 2020 shall apply to all offenders.
“There will be further communications on school resumption. These new guidelines are subject to reviews as situations dictate.”
