Ghana caps event admissions at 100 as gov't rolls out phase one to ease Covid-19 restrictions

The Government of Ghana has announced a maximum of hundred persons will be allowed to attend events such as conferences and workshops from June 5 as it begins the first phase towards easing Coronavirus restrictions.

President Akufo-Addo announced the new directives in his tenth address to the nation last night on measures being taken to deal with the virus spread.

"Individual, non-contact sports can go ahead. Conferences, workshops, weddings, political activities, except rallies, can now take place, but with limited numbers not exceeding one hundred persons present, with the appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols," he said.
Under the new measures, restaurants can now provide seated services.

However, "I have, by Executive Instrument, provided for these new directions, and extended the suspension of the remaining public gatherings, as set out in E. I 64 of 15th March, until 31st July.

Ghana’s borders remain closed to travellers under the new directives.
