As part of measures put in place to contain the second wave of COVID-19 in Ondo State, the state government has declared that henceforth, only persons wearing face masks will be allowed entry into all government offices in the state.

The special adviser on health to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Dr. Jibayo Adeyeye, announced this on Tuesday while addressing newsmen at the cocoa conference hall of the governor’s office.

Adeyeye expressed concerns that a larger percentage of people in the state are not complying with the simple precautionary measures against the virus, noting that government will begin to enforce the measures.
