The festive season is upon as, event planners are looking at innovative ways to provide entertainment and ensure entertainment part with the monies and corona virus is on the rise, and in trident of affairs, the Ghana Health Service is asking for only one thing, that is event planners keep health officers in the know in the planning of the programs.
This directive from the Ghana Health Service is in a bid to prevent the country from having to weather a fourth wave of the corona virus, something many people believe the country is not in the position to overcome.
The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye explained that the directive is inline with ensuring these programs follow all the safety protocols to keep all participants safe, adding that events planned should not exceed 25% of the capacity of the venue.
“The capacity for indoor events must not go beyond 25% of the existing capacity of that facility to ensure social distancing. We all know the indoor area is where the spread is highest.”
“We have also made our teams ready that all those organising events should invite the team to come and assist them in the setting to make sure it is safe, and all other COVID-19 protocols should be observed.”
