Following appeals by a cross section of citizens of Plateau State and in the spirit of the 2020 May Day Celebrations, Governor Simon Bako Lalong has granted Monday 4th May as lockdown-free, to enable people conduct transactions which they could not carry out on Friday 1st May due to the public holiday marking Workers Day.
Consequently, citizens are to use the day to access services such as banking transactions which were closed because of the May Day public holiday.
However, they are enjoined to note that the curfew directed by the Federal Government will be in force from 8pm, Monday 4th May, while the total lockdown and restriction on intra-Local Government movements earlier announced by the Governor will resume on Tuesday 5th May, 2020.
The Governor reiterates that earlier guidelines for social distancing, observation of hygiene and sanitation, inter-State border closure, as well as the use of face masks in public places among others remain in place.
