Osun shuts courtrooms, asks judicial workers to go for COVID-19 tests

Authorities of the Osun State Judiciary on Saturday ordered the closure of all courtrooms and offices following the revelation that some staff of the place had contracted COVID-19 virus disease.

“Hence, all staff of the Judiciary below Level 12 are hereby directed to stay at, and work from home, so as to contain the spread of the pandemic.

“All staff affected should stop coming to work with effect from Monday, 1st February, 2021. Furthermore, all staff of Osun State Judiciary should undergo COVID-19 test immediately.”
