Osun government bans street carnival and cross over service

Osun State Government on Friday told residents that the ban on youth carnivals and countdown to the New Year ceremonies still subsists.

A Public Service Announcement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Wole Oyebamiji, also said all social clubs, hotels, departmental stores, supermarkets, event centers, and allied centres were to henceforth operate at half of their capacities and observe COVID-19 protocols.

The government also appealed to the residents to cut down on social gatherings to reduce the spate of exposure and contact with possible carriers visiting the State during the Yuletide period.

The announcement read in part, “The State Government of Osun would like to remind all citizens that the new directives aimed at curbing the spread of the Coronavirus are still in force.

“By implication, the ban on youth carnivals and countdown to the New Year ceremonies still subsists. Also, all social clubs, hotels, departmental stores, supermarkets, event centers and allied centres are to henceforth operate at half of their capacities and observe Covid-19 protocols.

“Wearing of face Masks at public places is equally compulsory. Government further appeals to all residents and citizens to cut down on social gatherings, including weddings, naming ceremonies, funeral ceremonies to reduce the spate of exposure and contact with possible carriers visiting the State during the Yuletide period.

“Furthermore, towns and cities are to put on hold the annual days through physical attendance and change such to virtual version.
The State Government assures all citizens and residents that Government is insisting on all these measures in their collective interest.”
