The Greater Accra Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has lifted the ban on the operations of beaches in the region.
It, however, said entry to the beaches shall be allowed for only persons who show proof of vaccination.
The Chairman of the Greater Accra Regional Security Council, Henry Quartey has therefore urged Beach operators to ensure strict adherence to all COVID-19 safety protocols.
He made this known when he addressed the media after an extended REGSEC meeting in Accra.
He also advised operators to ensure that entry points are separated from exit points to avoid overcrowding.
Following the reports of the representative of the Ghana Health Service, REGSEC decided that the beaches be closed before and during the festivities. But we have reviewed the decision that was taken.
It has been decided by REGSEC jointly with the GHS that operators of the various beaches in the Greater Accra Region can go back and do business on the condition that people who patronise the beaches showed proof of vaccination or will be vaccinated at the point of entry. We pray that the operators will abide by this new directive and abide by the COVID-19 protocols at the beaches”, he stated
The minister further mentioned that the REGSEC is collaborating with the Ghana Health Service to mount vaccination posts at the various beaches to see to the implementation of this latest arrangement.
