President Akufo-Addo has announced the re-opening of open air drinking spots.
The President made the announcement when he addressed the country for the 14th time on measures taken by government to stop the spread of the virus.
“In consultation with the Ghana Tourism Authority and the health experts, I am announcing the reopening of our nation’s tourist sites and attractions, so they can begin to receive visitors.
“Open air drinking spots can now function. The management of these facilities are tasked to enforce enhanced hygiene and social distancing protocols.”
The President however indicated that beaches, pubs, cinemas and nightclubs “remain closed until further notice.”
The president also stressed that Ghana’s borders remain closed until further notice.
“Our borders, by air, land and sea, remain closed until further notice for human traffic. However, given that there are Ghana residents stranded abroad, special dispensation will continue to be given for the evacuation of our nationals and residents back to Ghana, where they will be subjected to the mandatory quarantine and safety protocols,” he added.
