Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Saturday ordered tertiary institutions in Lagos to reopen from September 14 while primary and secondary schools in the state will reopen on September 21, 2020. He said the date for primary and secondary schools’ reopening would be tentative.
Sanwo-Olu who gave an update of Coronavirus at the Lagos House, Marina on Saturday said the pandemic had continued to plunge in Lagos, the reason he said tertiary institutions were now allowed to resume on 14 September, 2020.
He said primary and secondary schools in the State would now open September 21, but that the decision was subject to review.
Sanwo-Olu said the government had expected that the curve would flatten by August and that in the last two weeks, the state had continued to record a drop in infections.
He also said restaurants were permitted to open for e-dining service and must ensure 50 percent maximum occupancy, while social clubs and recreation centres that had registered with the government could open.
The governor, however, said event centres, lounges, gyms, spars and others would still remain close, but noted that a date would be agreed upon for their resumption in September.
