Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, has lifted the ban on beaches just a week after a decision to shutdown beaches in Accra in a bid to control the spread of the corona virus this festive period.
The initial decision to close down beaches in Accra was taken after a meeting the Regional Minister and Regional Security Council on Friday, December 24, noting that the closure of all beaches in Accra would go beyond the new year but has now been rescinded.
Besides the closure of beaches in Accra, wearing of nose masks, sanitizing of hands and strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocols were to become mandatory and enforced in all public places in the region.
But the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, who also doubles as the member of parliament for the Ayawaso Central Constituency has backtracked on his decision and opened the doors of beaches in the Region.
He however stated that health practitioners would be stationed at the entrance of every beach in the region to vaccinate all those who have not been vaccinated before allowing them entry into the beach
