President Akufo-Addo has indicated that until further notice, all the restrictions as announced in his last address remain in force.
Delivering his 24th national address on the covid-19 outbreak, the President said the Police will continue to ensure compliance by all and sundry.
”If all of us stay the course, and adhere strictly to the protocols, we will emerge out of this pandemic even stronger than before. This is my charge to you this evening, my fellow Ghanaians. There is light at the end of the tunnel, we dare not give up all the hard work at this point in time.”
In his 23rd national address in January, he announced that funerals, weddings, concerts, theatrical performances, and parties were banned.
He added that private burials, with no more than twenty-five (25) people, can take place, with the enforcement of the social distancing, hygiene and mask-wearing protocols.
Beaches, night clubs, cinemas, and pubs continue to be shut. Our borders by land and sea remain closed.
”All workplaces, public and private, he further noted, must employ a shift-system for workers, in addition to the use of virtual platforms for business or work. Conferences and workshops can take place with all the appropriate protocols” he said.
Restaurants are to provide takeaway services and should, as much as possible, avoid seated services.
The National Sports Authority and the Ghana Football Association are to ensure compliance with the twenty-five percent (25%) capacity rule in our stadia, with spectators respecting the social distancing rule and wearing of masks.
