Following the proliferation of new coronavirus cases in neighboring states, Cross River State Governor Ben Ayade has imposed new restrictions on residents.
These are: No citizen or resident of the state will be allowed to leave home without a face mask from Friday.
Failure to adhere to this directive will lead to the arrest and quarantine of the offender for 14 days.
The Cross River State garment factory has been mandated to produce face masks to be distributed free to citizens and residents alike to meet with the demand.
Those who for one reason or the other were unable to get masks from government before the new restrictions kick in were advised to purchase theirs from shops selling the item.
All public gatherings remain banned; markets should remain closed except where foodstuff were being sold.
All exit and entry points into the state were now completely lockdown. No human or vehicular movement would be allowed into the state under any guise
