COVID-19- Osun chief judge orders court staff to work from home

The Osun State Chief Judge, Justice Adepele Ojo, on Sunday directed all court staff across the state to undergo the COVID-19 test.

In a statement issued by Chief Registrar of the State’s High Court, M. A Lasisi, the chief judge also ordered all staff below Grade Level 12 to work from home.

The directive followed the discovery of the United Kingdom COVID-19 variant in Osun State.

The state government had earlier on Sunday confirmed the discovery of five cases of the UK COVID-19 variant in the state.

The statement read: “I have the instruction of the Honourable Chief Judge of Osun State to convey to you the need to comply with the new COVID-19 protocols just released by the state government.
