The National Coordinator of Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 , Dr. Sani Aliyu has appealed to Nigerians not to travel for Christmas.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that National Coordinator of the Task Force made this appeal while giving the weekly media briefing on Friday November 13.
“We know that we are going into the Christmas period. The PTF is already looking at steps to minimize the surge in passengers’ numbers we see during this period.
But this will primarily be by discouraging people from non-essential travels. If you do not need to travel, remain in the country during the period.
If you are outside the country, now is not the time to start coming in on holiday. If you do have to come into the country on holiday, be aware that you have to do the mandatory seven days isolation before you show yourself anywhere within the country and you have to be tested and confirmed to be negative to exit self-isolation.
We will not be relaxing the rules simply because it is holiday season,” he said
