Uploaded by Michael George on March 19, 2020
As part of the preventive measures against the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Lagos State Government is closing down all public and private schools from Monday, 23rd March 2020.
A statement signed by the Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folashade Adefisayo says the move became necessary to prevent children and their teachers from getting more vulnerable to the pandemic.
Assuring residents that the closure is not intended to create panic but to arrest the spread of the disease, which has become a global threat, the Statement adds that the incident command centre will continue to trace all contacts of the identified cases and encourage anyone who has information about suspected cases to report to the nearest hospital or call the emergency telephone numbers 08023169485, 08033565529, 08052817243 and 08023401214.
