Lagos state government orders reopening of tertiary institutions in the state on September 14

Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered the reopening of tertiary institutions within the state effective Monday, September 14.

The governor disclosed this development during a daily briefing on the state’s COVID-19 status on Saturday, August 29.

During his address, the governor announced that primary and secondary schools also are tentatively scheduled to re-open from September 21.

He explained that the choice to re-open schools within the state was supported indications that the pandemic has peaked in the state because the number of new cases continues to steadily decline.

“This decision isn't cast in stone and is subject to review of our ongoing modelling and what procedure comes out from the Ministry of Health,” he said.

He further reiterated that restaurants are now permitted to open for in-dining services within the state, although they need to still ensure spaces are only filled up to 50 percent capacity at all times.

The governor said a review will be done in September to make a decision whether to allow a re-opening of event centers, bars, night clubs, beaches, cinemas, and other public spaces.
