Less than ten days to the Muslims eid-el Fitri festival, Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has eased the restriction on Worship places and social gatherings earlier imposed on the state following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
A press statement released on Thursday and signed by the governor’s Press Secretary, Humwashi Wonosikou said “churches, Mosques and the international Cattle Markets under lockdown can now reopen, but must ensure social distancing with no more than 50 people at a time. Other measures include provision of hand sanitizers or washing of hands and temperature checks at the point of entry.”
He said the Adamawa state Government now believes the contagion rate of the virus is low enough to justify a cautious easing of the restriction, but warned that citizens must work extra hard on personal hygiene and strict adherence to laid down guidelines.
Governor Fintiri said the easing of the lockdown comes as the state discharge five (5) from its isolation center after testing negative of the virus.
However, the 8pm to 6am curfew will remain in place until further notice.
