The Federal Government has vowed that anyone without a face mask would be denied entry and services by the states and the federal government.
It, therefore, called for strict enforcement of the mask in public places, especially in government and commercial premises..
Dr Sani Aliyu, the National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 who made this statement during a briefing in Abuja, added that the second phase of the lockdown easing would be extended for four weeks from July 1.
“Access to government and commercial premises will not be allowed if you are not wearing a face mask.
“In other words, no mask, no entry and no services will be provided in government and commercial premises.
“The curfew remains from 10 pm to 4 am nationwide…but we strongly recommend avoiding unnecessary contact with people.”
“For industry and labour, they will maintain normal working hours based on the curfew arrangement apart from government offices that will have a separate working hours’ schedule. Offices must maintain a workforce at 75 per cent capacity.
“For banks and financial institutions, they will operate normal working hours with no change. For government offices, there is no specific change. Working hours remain 9 am to 2 pm from Grade Level 14 and above.
“For personalised services – mechanics, artisans, hair salons etc., who own their workshop or workstations and can adhere to non-pharmaceutical intervention, they will be permitted to operate as normal.
“For markets, there is no specific change to what we already have in Phase II, and this will be driven by local authority arrangement.
“For hotels, restaurants and eateries, there is no specific change. Hotels must observe all mandatory non-pharmaceutical interventions.
“Restaurants are to remain closed for eat-in, with strict cleanliness guidelines, except for restaurants that are serving hotel residents.
“Gyms, cinemas, event centres, and nightclubs must remain closed and these will be enforced.
“For churches and mosques, no specific change. Phase Two remains. For recreational parks/ communal sports, restrictions remain, as well as the restriction on recreational parks until further evaluation.
“For funerals and weddings, no particular change. Funerals and weddings are to be limited to 20 people, including close family members.”
