Clarification on Ogun Extends Ban to Schools, Worship centresOgun Extends Ban to Schools, Worship centresCOVID-19; Ogun Extends Ban to Schools, Worship centres


This is to clarify that my directive to place a ban on high-density gatherings affects all cramming of 50 or more people, including government and private-owned schools and religious centres in Ogun State.

All schools in the State are to be closed indefinitely after close of work tomorrow, March 20, 2020.

Parents and guardians, who have entries in boarding facilities, are therefore urged to immediately put plans in place to withdraw their children and wards to their homes tomorrow.

While everyone continues to maintain social distance, avoid large gatherings and limit avoidable travels, I seek the understanding and full cooperation of parents, school operators and indeed all Ogun State people during this time, as we continuously review measures and restrictions currently in place.

Suspected cases should be reported at the nearest Primary Healthcare Centre across all 236 wards in the State or call the Emergency Operations Centre on 08188978393 or 08188978392
