Covid-19: Oyo state shuts down tertiary institution

The Oyo State covid-19 Task Force has shut down a tertiary institution following the discovery of a Covid-19 case.

This was confirmed in a statement issued on Saturday in Ibadan by Mr. Taiwo Adisa, the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Seyi Makinde on behalf of the Task Force.

The statement noted that the Task Force has begun contact tracing while subjecting every possible contact to necessary surveillance.

The management of schools, workplaces and religious centres were also enjoined to ensure strict compliance with the established Covid-19 protocols.

“The Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) of the Task Force has immediately ordered a lock-in of the affected tertiary institution to keep staff, students, and the general public safe.

“The EOC has also kick-started contact tracing while subjecting every possible contact to necessary surveillance,” the statement reads in part.

The Taskforce urged the public not to panic as all necessary protocols needed for effective management and psychosocial support had been instituted.

It called on the public to remain vigilant.
