The President, Nana Akufo-Addo has banned the organisation of funerals, weddings, theatrical performances and other public gatherings as part of measures to fight the spread of COVID-19 disease.
Addressing the public on measures taken by the government to stop the spread of the COVID-19 disease, the President said he has been forced to revert to the banning of these public gatherings because of the increasing cases of the disease.
He said all funerals should be restricted to at 25 persons.
“Funerals, wedding, theatrical performances are banned, beaches, night clubs remain closed…,” he said during the 23rd Update.
He further urged all religious organisations, particularly churches and mosques to ensure that their members adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols put in place by the government.
Testing for the disease at public institutions, he added, is also free.
