In a new guideline easing the lockdown induced by the COVID-19 pandemic, the State Government said that all markets are now allowed to commence full operations, while worship centres that were restricted to once weekly meetings can now commence their weekly services, subject to COVID-19 safety protocols .
In a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode, Osun government said that the new guideline takes immediate effect.
The statement read in part: “The State Government of Osun has appraised the current status of the State in the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, and has decided to relax some of its lockdown measures following some emerging positive indices.
“In the light of this, approval has been given for the full reopening of all markets and worship centres in the state, for the purpose of serving the needs of the people on the one hand and to preserve the means of the traders’ livelihood on the other.
Adequate provision should be made for hand washing facilities (soap and running water) and hand sanitisers at entry points and at strategic places, for use by leaders and attendees.
“There has been significant improvement in the statistics of the State with respect to the infection, but the State is not COVID-19 -free yet. The responsibility of ridding the State of the virus is a collective effort, and citizens are advised to take responsibility for their own safety while the government will continue to invest in its commitment to ensure the safety of people from actual and potential threats”, the statement read.
