However, Fayemi noted that restriction of movement during the lockdown will be relaxed on Thursdays, April 16 and April 23, between 6 am and 2 pm to enable residents to restock their homes with essentials. 

The Ekiti state governor went on to note that wearing of facemasks in public places as from Tuesday, April 14, is now compulsory. He added that plans are being finalized to make the masks available for those on essential duties. 

With the extension, the school on-line education programme for primary and secondary school students would continue, while gatherings of over twenty people are still prohibited.
