The Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development has declared that it will soon commence enforcement to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus disease on all construction sites in Lagos.

According to a statement issued by the Honourable Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, all construction sites in the State are urged to ensure that they do not have more than 20 workers on site every day.

The Commissioner declared that provision must be made for hand-washing, in addition to the use of alcohol-based sanitisers for workers and visitors alike, stressing that it is equally important that all construction workers observe social distancing of not less two metres.

According to him, construction sites are expected to maintain good hygiene at all times for the safety and wellbeing of their workers and visitors, saying that “all construction workers are also required to sanitise themselves before and after their daily schedule on the site”.
