Dr Sani Aliyu who is the National Coordinator of the Taskforce, made this known during the weekly media briefing of the taskforce on Friday November 13.

“We know that we are going into the Christmas period. The PTF is already looking at steps to minimise 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.
