President Nana Addo has lifted the COVID-19 ban for Religious activities to begin.
President Nana Addo in his 10th Nation address lifted the ban on religious activities placed a few weeks ago due to the COVID-19.
During the address, the President directed religious activities to commence beginning June 5, 2020, with only a maximum of 100 people in a church or mosque.
He advised religious leaders to ensure that protective procedures are followed by their members to avoid the spread of the virus.
“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 cases.
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.”
