Restaurants in Lagos State can now operate eat-in from August 14, 2014, the state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said.

The governor who spoke at a COVID-19 briefing at the State House in Marina on Saturday, said the restaurants however that they must operate only 50 per cent capacity and strictly adhere to social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The governor also announced that schools will resume on August 3 to enable exit students to write their examinations, while mosques and churches would reopen in the state on August 9 and 11 respectively.

He however said that worship centres must make available hand sanitisers, thermometer guns and maintain social distancing.

“Places of worship in Lagos will now be opened from Friday, August 7 for our Muslim worshippers and on Sunday, August 9 for our Christian worshippers.

“We will only be allowing 50 per cent of their capacity at either the church or the mosque. Churches that have Saturday worship day will also be allowed to start holding their Saturday worship.

“We must reiterate that places of worship are only permitted to have their regular once a week service on designated days.”
