COVID-19: Gov. Bello Closes Entry Points Into Kogi, Orders Strict Health Checks

Corona Virus Isolation

Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has ordered the immediate closure of all entry points into the state.

The order includes land travels and waterways.

A statement issued by Commissioner for Information and Communication in Lokoja on Wednesday said entry and transit by any vehicle will be subjected to a successful health check of all passengers.

Fanwo added that to prevent avoidable delays, which may extend to preventive quarantining, persons with any disease condition similar to COVID-19 symptoms, including elevated temperatures, should have a medical report from a reputable hospital and medical practitioner explaining their condition before venturing through the state.

The state government also issued guidelines of operation for all commercial motorists and cyclists.

“Tricycle (keke) operators may carry only one (1) passenger at a time and must provide hand sanitizers for use by their passengers. Regular 4-wheeled taxis may carry only three (3) passengers at a time (1 in front and 2 behind) and must provide hand sanitizers for use by their passengers. Buses may carry only two (2) passengers per row of seats, subject to a maximum of 10 passengers per trip for any type of bus.

“All transport companies, transport unions and terminal operators must keep a travel manifest for inbound and outbound passengers, especially verified phone numbers. They must also provide hand-wash stands with soap in the garages and hand sanitizers in the buses. Passengers are required to cooperate by washing their hands with soap and water and sanitize them before boarding. They are to be denied boarding if they fail to comply with the hygiene procedures.

“Relevant officials are empowered to stop and enforce compliance. Defaulters will be arrested.

“All public areas, pubs, bars and restaurants are limited to 5 customers at a time, seated apart in line with the social distancing guidelines. Operators and customers are advised to utilise delivery and takeaway options more during this period,” the statement read.

Also, the state government reinforced suspension of all social, cultural and religious activities. Essential activities must not have a crowd beyond 5 persons.
