If you are in Lagos and you run a gym, restaurant, event center, spa, or religious center, you should read this.
As Nigeria continues to ease the lockdown implemented in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lagos State Government has allowed most businesses to resume and requested that they adhere to certain restrictions and standards of hygiene and social distancing.

However, the state government had until recently prohibited schools, salons, spas, and places of worship from opening. It said these centers would remain closed until modalities had been worked out to allow for them to reopen safely.
Now, the state government is requesting owners of businesses it had barred from reopening during the initial phases of its easing of the lockdown to register with the Lagos State Safety Commission. These businesses could be allowed to reopen if they meet the criteria set out by the state.
This rule also applies to religious centers in Lagos.
