Ekiti state governor, Kayode Fayemi urther reduced the time of the dusk to dawn curfew in the state. Following the easing of the lockdown announced last week by the President.
The state government has released fresh guidelines spanning a month to regulate the movement and activities of people in its bid to curb the spread of coronavirus COVID-19.
The curfew would be effective from 8pm to 6am daily to afford the people more time for movement, as against the 6pm to 6am curfew earlier in place. Only three days – Monday, Wednesday, and Friday – will be open for movement and businesses for a one-month period as stated by the governor.
Governor Fayemi announced public service resumption for officers on Grade Levels 13 and above within the three days designated for free movement.
The government, therefore, called on residents of the state to observe regular hand washing, use of face masks, and social distancing among other measures prescribed to curb the spread of coronavirus in Ekiti state.
