Omicron: FG Reviews COVID-19 Protocol For International Travel

The Federal government has said it would not delay in reviewing the reopening of churches and mosques if people fail to adhere to the laid down guide.

Boss Mustapha, the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, made this know yesterday, during their daily briefing in Abuja.

The guidelines shared earlier this week, include that worshippers with health issues like diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases should stay at home.

The guideline also prescribed that vulnerable people and those above 55 years should not be part of such religious gatherings.

As we approach the weekend, we remind the public to be aware of the guidelines set for restricted opening of places of worship.

“The PTF will continue to monitor the overall compliance to the easing of restriction as well as evolution of the outbreak.

“However, we will not hesitate to review as we progress, should the situation warrant, to avoid preventable risks of transmission,” Mustapha said.

Nigeria as of Friday morning, has recorded 11,516 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
