The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, said the Federal Government has not given the green light for inter-state trips.

Mustapha, disclosed this during the COVID-19 daily briefing on Monday in Abuja.

Recall that the FG announced the relaxation of the restriction placed on worship centres as part of measures to curtail the spread of the virus.

He, however, said the ban on inter-state travel is still in place.

He said: “There is a ban on gatherings of more than 20 people outside of the workplace.

“There is now a relaxation of the restriction on places of worship based on guidelines issued by the PTF and protocols agreed by state governments.

“We should also manage access to markets and locations of economic activity to limit the risk of transmission.

“Ban on inter-state travels except for the movement of agricultural produce, petroleum products, manufactured goods, and essential services;

“Mandatory use of non-medical face masks in public places.”
