The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has directed that all Concerts, carnivals and street parties be banned in Lagos State until further notice.
This is necessitated by the reemergence of a second wave of the deadly coronavirus in the state of Lagos.
Governor Sanwo-Olu in a personal letter to Lagosians issued on Friday after a virtual Executive Council meeting on issues around the resurgence of COVID-19 and how to tackle it said Lagos State cannot afford to relax the battle against COVID-19 and therefore appealed that it should be tackled as a serious matter.
“Concerts, carnivals and street parties are banned in Lagos State until further notice.
Night clubs have not been allowed to open yet. All night clubs in Lagos must immediately shut down, until further notice. The midnight to 4 am curfew imposed by the Federal Government remains in place”, a statement from the Lagos State government read.
“The protocol of ‘No Mask No Entry’ must be enforced by all public places: Offices, Businesses, Markets, Shops, and so on. Hand sanitizers or handwashing units are to be positioned at the entry point and various spots,” the statement added.
