The government of Lagos State has reaffirmed that places of worship will remain closed indefinitely.
The state governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, announced this on Friday, July 3 during a press briefing at Alausa, Ikeja.
The governor also declared that all restrictions applying to mass gatherings will remain in place. Not more than 20 persons are permitted, and this includes funerals as well.
The governor added that all social clubs and event centres will remain shut.
Sanwo-Olu emphasized that mask usage is mandatory in public places in Lagos State. Also, offices must refuse entry to persons not wearing masks.
This is in line with the Presidential Task Force (PTF) directive: “No mask, no entry. No mask, no service.”
“Enforcement agencies will charge defaulters to court from this week,” he reaffirmed.
