The Federal Government has approved the reopening of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camps across the country.
National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, gave the details on Thursday during a briefing in Abuja.
He stated that the NYSC authorities should consolidate on the safety protocols, and reopen orientation camps when the tertiary institutions open.
“We are in the process of developing strict guidelines to ensure there is no outbreak of Covid-19 when this process starts,” he said.
Orientation camps were shut in March this year as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
He also stated that the PTF is making arrangements to see that the private sector is allowed to determine the number of staff that will work, but in a safe environment; while in public service, only level 12 and above will be allowed to work.
