The Osun State Government on Friday warned residents to adhere to all non-pharmaceutical safety protocols aimed at protecting them against coronavirus.
The government said it had observed that people in some quarters had been conducting themselves and their activities in manners that contravened the new set of COVID-19 management guidelines released on Wednesday.
The guidelines banned vigils and imposed a dusk to dawn curfew beginning from 10pm to 5am, among other guidelines.
A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, explained that the protocols were with immediate effect.
It read in part, “Osun State has observed that people in some quarters have been conducting themselves and their businesses/activities in manners that contravene the new set of COVID-19 management guidelines released on Wednesday.
“Citizens are informed that every condition in the guideline, including the conditions for the conduct of business, for events, religious activities and the curfew, are with immediate effect.”
