Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has mandated the use of face masks in public places effective from Friday, April 24.

A statement signed by Oyetola’s Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, on Thursday, explained that the decision to enforce the use of face mask was agreed on last week Thursday by the South West Governors at their virtual meeting.

Oyetola said the South-West states were the first to make the wearing of masks mandatory, adding that the regulation would remain in place till the states overcome the pandemic.

Meanwhile, the Governor said the sit-at-home order is still in place, urging them to cover their nose and mouth with a mask whenever they step out of their homes.

He further implored the residents to observe other precautionary measures of social distancing and regular washing of hands to curb the spread of the pandemic
