Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo has announced the reopening of the country's tourist sites to visitors.
In his latest address to the nation a while ago on measures taken against the spread of Coronavirus, President Akufo-Addo said after engagements with health experts and the main tourism agency, tourists can now visit the country's attractions.
"In consultation with the Ghana Tourism Authority and 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 protocol," he said.
The announcement will provide a big boost to efforts by the Ghana Tourism Authority to use domestic tourism to restart tourism.
Beaches, pubs cinemas and nightclubs still remain closed until further notice.
