President Akufo-Addo has announced the reopening of the country’s tourist sites and attractions.

After consultation with the Ghana Tourism Authority and the health experts, the president in his address on July 26, announced “the reopening of our nation’s tourist sites and attractions, so they can begin to receive visitors”.

In addition to the reopening of tourists sites and attractions, he further stated, “open-air drinking spots can now function.”

This comes nearly four months after they were ordered to close down in a bid to curb the spread of the virus.

His announcement forms part of the second phase of the easing of restrictions imposed on the country.

Addressing the nation on the effects of the measures taken to fight Covid-19, the President tasked the management of these facilities “to enforce enhanced hygiene and social distancing protocols.”

However, “beaches, pubs, cinemas and nightclubs, however, remain closed until further notice,” he added.
