Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina said commercial drivers and their passengers must wear face masks henceforth.
He also ordered the drivers to provide hand sanitisers for passengers.
Katsina has 337 cases of coronavirus and Masari wants to curb further spread.
He said government would enforce use of face masks to prevent the spread of the virus.
“It is time for use of face masks and maintaining cleanliness, as preventive measures against the disease,” he said.
He urged the media to continue to enlighten the public on the safety measures against the disease.
“The war against COVID-19 is everybody’s affair; everyone must be responsible and involved in the war.
“We have to aggressively use sensitisation as a tool for fighting the disease,” he said.
The governor, however, said that this could not be done without the support of the media; hence the need for the media to continue to intensify efforts in enlightening the public on safety measures.
He also restated the ban on inter-local government movement within the state.
