The state Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu disclosed this on Saturday during the 17th Update on the Management of the Coronavirus Pandemic in Lagos State.

He said that the decision to re-open schools was carefully thought through, in view of the decline in the number of positive cases and the progress recorded in response.

Sanwo-Olu, however urged the management of the schools to ensure adherence to the safety guidelines.
