Bello stated that the FCT administration would be working very closely with the Judiciary through the Mobile Courts System under existing approved laws.
He said recorded figures over the last three weeks in FCT have been unacceptably high and there was an urgent need to contain it as much and as fast as possible.
The minister, therefore, said that mandatory temperature checks must be carried out on all employees and customers entering office and business premises in the FCT.
Bello said all staff members, visitors and customers entering workplaces, shops or business premises must wear a face mask that should cover the mouth and nose.
