PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
USE OF FACE MASKS BY RESIDENTS OF AKWA IBOM STATE
It has been observed that majority of the citizens and residents of the state are not complying with the directive on the use of Face-mask.
While some people use the Face-mask wrongly, others exchange and share theirs with friends and family members.
It should be noted that Face-mask is a personal item and should therefore, not be shared with anyone.
Locally made Face-masks should be washed, sun dried and ironed after each use. Also, for public safety, Face-masks should not be tried-on before purchase from vendors.
The use of Face-mask is mandatory for everyone in the state as a safety measure to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus in Akwa Ibom state.
Government therefore, enjoins all citizens and residents to adhere strictly to the directive while also observing social distancing and other precautionary measures prescribed by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
