COVID-19: Kaduna Government partially lifts curfew

The Kaduna State State Committee on COVID-19 has announced that markets will partially open on Tuesday, April 14, and Wednesday, April 15, 2020 from 8am to 6pm on each day.

According to a statement signed on Monday evening by Commissioner, Internal Security and Home Affairs, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, only sellers of food and medicines are permitted to open their shops.

“This is part of the deliberate policy of relaxing the restriction of movement on two days every week to enable citizens stock up on food and essentials,” he said

According to him, customers who come into the market are expected to observe social distancing, which will be strictly enforced.

“Commercial buses are expected to comply with the limit of two persons per row maximum. Okadas and Keke are prohibited from plying on any road.

“Only persons who have a compelling reason to go out should do. The public health advisory is that COVID-19 prevention requires people to stay at home, wash their hands regularly with soap and water, avoid large gatherings and observe respiratory hygiene.
