Amid spike in the Covid-19 cases, Lagos state government has announced that the ban on churches and mosques will be lifted starting from Friday, August 7.
The governor made this known on Saturday, August 1, in an address where he gave an update on the efforts of the state governments on Covid-19 crisis.
Sanwo-Olu also announced that schools will be reopened for students in the graduating classes in the state on Monday, August 3.
According to him, this will enable them to prepare for the national and region external examinations including West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) administered by the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC).
The governor also said that restaurants in Lagos will operate eat-in services effective from Friday, August 14.
Lagos government, it would be recalled, had imposed ban on worship centres (mosques and churches) due to the ravaging effect of the Covid-19 pandemic in the state and country.
Efforts to reopen the worship centres and schools were frustrated in June 2020, as there was a sudden rise in confirmed cases of coronavirus infection recorded daily.
