Hotels, bars violating COVID-19 rules to pay N250,000 fine –Osun

The Osun State Government has said beginning from Monday (today), hotels, bars and clubs found to have disregarded COVID-19 protocols will be liable to N250,000 fine.

The government, in an announcement on Sunday by the Deputy Governor and chairman of the COVID-19 task force in the state, Mr Benedict Alabi, blamed some individuals and institutions for the spread of coronavirus through flagrant disregard for government’s guidelines.

The statement read in part, “From Monday, August 3, 2020, the Osun State Government will begin enforcement of stronger punitive measures which will include the deployment of mobile courts, imposition of fines on defaulters and stringent enforcement exercises by the joint task force.

Hotels, clubs and bars that flout COVID-19 safety protocols shall be closed and fined N250,000 before they can be reopened. Defaulting worship centres shall be closed and fined N100,000 before they can reopen. Private Hospitals caught treating COVID-19 patients shall have their establishments shut and the owners’ practising licence withdrawn.”
