COVID -19: Lalong directs closure of markets in Plateau

All public servants in Plateau State from Grade levels 12 and below are to work from home for the next 30 days.

“Only workers offering essential services such as security, health, media, street cleaners and water supply and energy are exempted from this directive.

“The weekly State Executive Council meeting is hereby suspended indefinitely. However, the Council will continue to consult and meet through digital means,” he said.

Lalong urged motor parks to capture and keep data including contacts of all inbound and outbound passengers as well as adhere strictly to social distancing and mass gathering prohibition.

He also implored them to comply with hygiene regulations, adding that all entry points into Plateau by land and air would be subjected to the preliminary test.

The governor expressed worry that directives given to the public on 20 March on the suspension of cultural festivals and closure of schools were flaunted, saying the government would no longer tolerate disobedience.
