The 2020 edition of the BBnaija show has been scheduled to kickstart on Sunday, July 19 and housemates have been placed on quarantine as prescribed by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
At a virtual press briefing on Thursday, MultiChoice disclosed that they were working with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to ensure the highest level of safety of housemates and the production crew.
The organizers announced that “potential housemates are currently in quarantine ahead of the July 19 premiere”.
“They will be monitored whilst in quarantine until they are deemed fit health-wise. Anyone that shows signs of ill health, will as expected not be a part of the show.”
The Big Brother House has also been disinfected and won’t be accessible to anyone till when the housemates make their way into their new abode.
Channel Director, Africa Magic, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, explained that even before the pandemic, housemates usually go through extensive health checks before entering the house.
Noting that, that has been elevated due to the present circumstances, she said, “The Big Brother show lends itself to a certain level of quarantine, seamlessly integrating into the COVID-19 guidelines.”
