The Presidential Task Force (PTF), on COVID-19 on Thursday lifted the ban on sporting activities and directed all categories of civil servants to resume work.

The task force’s National Coordinator of the PTF, Dr. Sani Aliyu, disclosed this at its press briefing in Abuja.

Aliyu said: “It is therefore the informed recommendation of the PTF that Nigeria maintains Phase 3 of the response with further changes to address economic, socio-political and healthcare.

“In this regard, and effective from Monday, October 19, 2020 at a minute past midnight, the following guidelines will come into place.

“The lifting of restriction on outdoor sporting activities including football is in line with earlier consultations with the Federal Ministry of Youth Sport Development and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

However, this is limited to the actual sport itself not with mass gatherings.

“In this regard mass gathering including at sport events is still restricted as this represents an opportunity for the virus to spread with an increased rate of a second wave.

“For gatherings in enclosed places, this will continue to be limited to only 50 persons with physical distancing and compulsory wearing of face masks except for workplaces. (NAN)
