President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says that the wearing of face masks is still mandatory across the country until December 14.
This decision, he added, is intended to preserve the steady decline observed in the number of active cases of Covid-19 that have been registered.
In his 17th speech to the country, he acknowledged that the police service will also follow the legislation that regulates the protocol.
I extended my Executive Instrument, the obligatory wearing of facial masks, for another three months on Monday 14 September. Thus, the wearing of masks will remain obligatory until 14 December 2020.
Our life is a new standard before the virus dies, “he said, on Sunday.”
In the battle against Covid-19, he says, the wearing of face coverings “has served us well.”
In schools that were ordered to resume studies to encourage students to write their final exams, Akufo-Addo lauded the adherence to safety protocols.
He encouraged the public to religiously follow the government’s safety procedures.
The President announced that the nation had 507 active coronavirus cases as of September 18, with 45,258 recoveries and 297 deaths. Out of 470,730 experiments completed so far, these figures are out.
