SHARE

The Kaduna State Government has announced that from October 31, civil servants who are yet to be vaccinated for COVID-19 will be denied access to government offices.

This was disclosed in a statement titled ‘Compliance with Covid protocols and vaccination required to access KDSG offices from 31st October 2021,’ issued by the Special Adviser to the Kaduna State Governor on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye.

The statement read: “As it continues to balance public health considerations and the safe pursuit of livelihoods, the Kaduna State Government is constantly monitoring COVID-19 infections in the state and reviewing the pattern of spread.

“Based on these reviews, the State Covid-19 Taskforce has advised the government that the risk of mass infection by Covid-19 remains. This necessitates that careful attention must be paid to continued enforcement of preventive measures and encouraging residents of Kaduna State to practice personal responsibility more consistently. This is in line with the FORWARD campaign launched last year to help citizens adopt preventive measures as the state reopened after months of lockdown.

“The commencement of vaccinations against Covid-19 is the most significant development in the public health space since the virus began its tragic worldwide spread. Thus far, only a minority of Nigerians have been vaccinated against Covid-19 because of supply issues.

Visitors will, however, be permitted entry upon presentation of evidence of registration with the state Ministry of Health for vaccination, while wearing their facemasks.
