Covid-19: Churches, mosques to open June 21, 19 respectively


Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State says worship centers in the state will be allowed to reopen.

The governor stated this on Thursday during a briefing at the Government House, Marina.

He said mosques are to reopen from June 19 while churches are to begin services from June 21.

He said hotels are allowed to reopen while gyms, night clubs, and cinemas would still remain closed, adding that the decision to reopen them would be reviewed in the next two weeks.

The governor said religious leaders should ensure that worshipers wear face masks, maintain social distancing and high-level hygiene, noting that state government officials would visit churches and mosques unexpectedly and those found not complying would be dealt with.
