Domestic aviation service operators have been granted permission to resume operations as soon as practicable.

This is according to the national coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Mr Sani Aliyu.

Making clarifications during the PTF briefing on Monday, Mr. Aliyu also noted that while the current curfew will remain, the Federal Government has lifted the ban placed on interstate travels with effect from July 1, provided such journeys are made outside curfew hours.

Mr Aliyu who was expatiating on a brief made by the chairman of the PTF, Boss Mustapha, further revealed that students in graduating classes will be allowed to resume as part of plans for the second phase of eased lockdown.

He, however, warned that the use of face masks will be strictly enforced, stressing that those without masks will not be granted entry into government and commercial premises.
