The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has facilitated the limitations forced on strict exercises in the nation.
He declared this on Sunday, May 31, 2020, during his tenth Address to the country on measures taken against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
During the Address, the President guided strict exercises to initiate starting June 5, 2020, with just a limit of 100 people in a church or mosque.
“As I stated in my May Day address, I’m now in a position to outline the roadmap for easing safely the restrictions. Ours is going to be a fazed approach involving a selective list of public gatherings based on the risk profile, socio-economic effect and most importantly, our capacity to enforce, respond and prevent a flare-up in our number of infections. With effect from Friday, 5th June, we will begin stage one of the process of easing restrictions. An abridged format for religious services can commence. Twenty-five percent attendance with a maximum number of congregants can worship at a time in church or mosque with the mandatory one-meter rule of social distancing between congregants,” he noted.
The choice to facilitate the open social affairs convention had been met with blended responses by Ghanaians.
