The government of Osun State is set to reopen hotels, bars and relaxation joints. This follows the approval of the State Executive Council at a meeting held recently. The state government has now invited the operators of bars, hotels and relaxation joints.
The government hopes to use the meeting to communicate the guidelines for reopening and subsequent operations of these businesses to their operators.
Each of the associations invited to the meeting is expected to send not more than five delegates to the meeting.
In March, Osun State Government closed hotels, bars and schools in an attempt to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease. Schools have remained closed since then except for students in exit classes who resumed recently to take their final examinations. Hotels, bars and others in the hospitality industry have since started operations against government directives in the state.
The state government also met with Principals of secondary schools in the state before their eventual resumption on Tuesday, 4th August.
