Lagos Reopens Worship Centres Aug. 7 as Clubs Remain Closed

1 Min Read

The new directive comes weeks after reneging on his decision to open religious centres back in June.

In a media briefing that held earlier today, Sanwo-Olu revealed that the state’s decision to reopen some businesses follows the reduced number of positive cases recorded in the state.

Religious centres will however not be permitted to hold activities for more than one day in the week and must comply with the 50 percent capacity rule. Restaurants and some social clubs will need to be certified by the state’s safety commission before resuming full operation. Upon approval, they must maintain the stipulated capacity.

The governor also increased the number of persons allowed in a public gathering from 20 to 50.

Clubs, cinemas, games arcades will remain closed but a review will hold in the coming weeks for possible reopening.

Recall the state shut down churches as well as major public gatherings back in March due to the coronavirus outbreak
