COVID-19: “Weddings Must Not Exceed 300 People In Attendance" - Lagos State Govt.

 COVID-19 In Lagos

Following the recent rise in the number of COVID-19 infections in Lagos State, the State Government has made it compulsory for prospective couples to obtain approval from the state authorities to hold weddings with not more than 300 people in attendance.

The Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission, Mr. Lanre Mojola stated this to newsmen after a brief meeting with the state's COVID-19 Safety Commission.

Lanre said; 

“Weddings and social gatherings must not exceed 300 people with prior clearance from the Lagos State Safety Commission.” 

He said that the new directive became necessary in view of the spike in the number of COVID-19 cases in the state.

Lanre added that the clearance exercise is free and prospective couples will have to visit the Commission’s website to input the details of their weddings.

According to him, safety marshals will be deployed to the event to ensure that all COVID-19 protocols are strictly adhered to in other to prevent any possible spread of the virus. 

The safety commission, however, warned that anyone caught flouting the directive would be sanctioned accordingly. 

Lanre stresses the need to comply with all COVID-19 safety measures such as wearing of facemasks, regular handwashing with soap and running water, use of sanitizer, social distancing, among others while organizing a wedding ceremony in order to curb the spread of the virus in Lagos.
