Wearing of facemasks will be compulsory from next week, Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos state has said.

Sanwo-Olu spoke during a press briefing at the state house, Marina, on Monday. He said the decision is part of the measures to protect residents against COVID-19.

He said about a million locally-made face mask, that were contracted to tailors, will be distributed during the week.

He advised residents not to rush the medical-grade face masks used by health workers, saying the locally-made ones will be sufficient and adequate.

He also said the state will prosecute patients who lie about their travel history to health workers.

“From next week, we are going to ask that face masks be compulsorily worn in public places. This is part of the deliberation we have had yo go through extensively today,” he said.

“We have commissioned more than one million face masks to be distributed in the state.”
