As part of measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease in the country, wearing of face masks in public places has been made mandatory within the Ahafo Region.
This is according to a directive issued by the Ahafo Regional Coordinating Council.
A statement signed by the Ahafo Regional Minister. Mr. Ebenezer Amoah said the directive takes immediate effect.
The statement also said notices of “NO FACE MASK, NO ENTRY” should be visibly displayed at vantage points including offices, lorry stations, shops, markets, malls, banks, pharmacies, among others.
COVID-19 cases in Ghana currently on the rise and hence pragmatic measures needs to be in place.
Mr. Amoah again said the decision is “in compliance with the President’s directives on social distancing and wearing of face masks.” These measures would help slow the spread of the Coronavirus especially from people who may have the virus but do not know.
