Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has directed all workers in the state to resume work on Monday, 4 May.
In a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof Solo Chukwulobelu on Thursday, teachers were listed amongst the category of workers that would resume work on Monday but primary and secondary school pupils in the area would remain at home.
The statement read in part, “The Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has directed that civil and public servants in the state, including primary and secondary school teachers resume work on Monday, 4th of May, 2020.
“Pupils and students should still remain at home and follow Anambra Teaching On Air through ABS radio, ABS TV and ABS online platforms.
“All should always observe strict personal hygiene protocols such as regularly washing of hands for 20 seconds each time, use of alcohol-based hand sanitisers and observing physical distancing guidelines.
“These protocols must be followed at public gatherings which should not exceed 30 persons.
“Places of worship should follow these strict personal hygiene protocols before and during worship, including compulsory wearing of face masks.
“The places of worship should not sit more than two persons in a pier. The pier behind should be left vacant before sitting of congregants in another pier. Religious services should not last long. Vigils and other forms of religious night worship are not allowed this time. Congregants should disperse immediately, and not wait around after religious service.”
Workers in Anambra were ordered home by the state government about a month ago as a measure to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
