The Federal Government Thursday directed the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to start making preparations for reopening of its orientation camps nationwide.
Orientation camps across the country had been shut in earlier March this year as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease.
Dr Sani Aliyu, the National Coordinator of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, gave the directive during a briefing at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
He said the task force was in the process of developing “strict guidelines” to forestall the outbreak of infections when NYSC camps reopen.
He said further: “For the National Youth Service Corps, the NYSC is to consolidate on safety measures currently being put in place and start preparing for the reopening of orientation camps when educational institutions open.
“We are in the process of developing strict guidelines to ensure there is no outbreak of Covid-19 when this process starts.”
