Breaking: Sanwo-Olu Gradually Eases Lagos COVID-19 Lockdown

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Wednesday announced the gradual and controlled easing of the lockdown in the state.

Sanwo-Olu disclosed this in a media briefing at the Lagos State Government House, Marina.

Naija News recalls that President Buhari had on Monday announced the gradual easing of the lockdown imposed on Lagos, Ogun and Abuja to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19).

Speaking on Wednesday, Governor Sanwo-Olu said all offices, business places, open markets and stores will be allowed to open daily from 9 am till 3 pm on selected days and only 60 per cent of staff strength should report for duty.

He stated that precautionary measures must be observed including social distancing, use of face masks, regular disinfection, provide hand-washing equipment, temperature checks and 60% maximum capacity.

Sanwo-Olu said: “Public officers in the entire unified public service from grade levels 1-12 are to remain and work from home; unless otherwise directed by their Accounting Officers.

“For those on Grade Levels 13 and above, Accounting Officers will carry out a Needs Assessment of critical staff, identify essential officers and draw up a Flexible Work Roster in compliance with Social Distancing principles. The Head of Service will provide further details via a circular.”

The governor, however, maintained that all schools, all entertainment centres, cinemas, arcades, bars, casinos, day clubs, nightclubs and beaches, swimming pools, gyms, barber-shops, spas, beauty salons and all public parks, including those in private and residential estates will continue to remain closed for another two weeks in the instance.

“Let me, however, say this: as many of us that can continue to work online and remotely from the office, please let us do so. Online and Work-from-Home arrangements are highly encouraged to continue as much as is practicable,” he said.

“Businesses/Companies are encouraged to make adequate arrangement for the transportation of their staff to their places of work to reduce the risk of contagion and exposure while travelling on public transportation.

“Companies transporting their staff to work in their private transportation arrangements shall be expected to strictly adhere to the principles of social distancing as well as enjoin their staff to practise very high levels of hand and personal hygiene.

“We will continue to monitor the public health situation; the economic impact of the lockdown and always adjust our responses accordingly,” Sanwo-Olu assured.
