Amid resurgence of Covid-19 pandemic in the country in general and Imo State in particular, Governor Hope Uzodinma has ordered the closure of Imo State Secretariat effective Monday, December 21 as part of measures to check the menace.

In a stateside broadcast on Sunday, December 20, 2020 where he outlined the dangers of the fresh spike in Covid-19 pandemic, Governor Uzodimma directed that all government workers except permanent secretaries and political appointees should stay away from office till further notice.

The governor said the wearing of face masks has become critical and compulsory for every Imo indigene as Mobile Courts have been directed to arrest and prosecute anyone found without wearing a face mask.

Also, the Governor directed that no social gathering in Imo State during this Christmas should have more than 100 persons in attendance just as the attendees must observe social distancing and all the Covid-19 safety protocols.

Markets and public places, the Governor noted, must also put in place wash hand facilities, sanitizers and other Covid-19 pandemic safety measures as recommended by the Nigetia Centre for Diseases Control (NCDC).
