The Greater Accra Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has directed that “With immediate effect, all beaches in the Greater Accra Region should be closed before and during the Christmas and New Year festivities”. This is part of plans to step up the fight against the new covid strain Omicron.
In a statement signed by Regional Minister Henry Quartey residents in the region were also asked to comply with the “Compulsory wearing of face masks, washing of hands, social distancing” and to strictly adhere to COVID 19 safety protocols in all public transports and public places.
Infact, the statement also noted that Effective Saturday, 25th December 2021, all passengers without face masks must not be allowed to board any means of public transport. All persons moving in public places were also asked to ensure that they wear their face masks and observe all the COVID-19 safety protocols.
