The Lagos State Government has vetoed the reopening of cinemas, spas and other recreational centres in the state.
The Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced this during a briefing on Saturday.
To curtail the spread of COVID-19, public places, cinemas, and other recreational outlets were shut in March.
But while some public places like markets, banks, and airports have been allowed to reopen, cinemas, beaches and other places of relaxation remain closed.

Giving an update on the development, Sanwo-Olu’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, said cinemas and other recreational outlets must obtain the necessary clearance from the state safety commission before reopening.
He also said cinemas are to observe COVID-19 protocol, including social distancing and, as such, should keep to 33 per cent occupancy of their maximum capacities.
“Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, announces resumption of cinemas, spas and gyms in the state. Cinemas must, however, keep strictly to 33% of their capacities. They must get the necessary certification from the Lagos State Safety Commission,” the governor’s aide tweeted.
