Federal Government warned state governments that were planning to reopen schools to drop the plan.
The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, gave the warning during the Presidential Task Force press briefing in Abuja.
Mustapha said it was not yet safe to reopen schools, television viewing centres, stadiums and other places where large gatherings could take place.
Last week, Kano State government reopened football viewing centres. There were reports on Monday that Cross River State, which had yet to record any COVID-19 case, was planning to reopen schools.
