Lagos State governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Sunday told civil servants on levels 1 to 12 in the state to stop going to work for the next two weeks as the state battles coronavirus.
Affected workers constitute 70 per cent of the state’s workforce. But workers in emergency and essential services such as healthcare and fire services are not included in the directive.
The order came hours after three new cases of the new coronavirus were confirmed in the state, bringing the total number of the virus cases in Lagos to 19.
Chief Press Secretary to Sanwo-Olu said the workers are not on holiday, as they are to work from home.
