GLO has advised vendors to wear face masks at all times and wash their hands regularly. Both vendors and buyers should maintain social distancing and avoid gathering in front of lottery stalls.
“Vendors should also plan their reservation of tickets carefully and keep in mind that not too many tickets may be sold during this crisis. The unsold tickets purchased through reservation cannot be returned to the GLO like tickets purchased normally,” said the office.
