Fast food joints, restaurants in Lagos have been allowed to operate dine-in services starting from August 14, 2020.
Disclosing this at State House, Marina, Lagos, during a press briefing, the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said that cinemas, night clubs and game arcades would not reopen yet for the State Government would watch the weeks to see how events turn when the restaurants and fast- food joints reopen.
”Restaurants will now be permitted for dine-in services from 14th of August  with the provision to keep 50 per cent occupancy capacity, meaning that they can now open from 14th August but ensure that they keep 50 per cent of their capacity for dine -in provision,” Gov. Sanwo-Olu said.
He however warned that his government would also ensure that the safety commission continue to issue them certificate of compliance. ”Social clubs and recreation centres would also be allowed to reopen – the ones that have applied to the safety commission.
”Some of them have met the conditions while some of them have not. They will go back and rectify them to ensure that they are ready. Clubs and centres that open without compliance with this mandatory requirement will be shut when enforcers go round.
”However, we will still not be able to open cinemas, night clubs and game arcades for now but will be observing in the weeks after the first opening to see how events turn before we come back to other social activities around night clubs, spas, game arcades and cinemas. We will review when they are safe to open,” he said.
