Regulatory agencies to begin random checks at offices to ensure COVID-19 protocols compliance


Summary short_text

As Ghana continues to grapple with the ravaging impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government says regulatory bodies will begin random checks at public spaces and workplaces to assess the level of compliance with the safety protocols.
"Persons in marketplaces, workplaces, and operators of public transport must conduct their activities in accordance with the hygiene and safety protocols. The wearing of masks in these places is mandatory. Regulatory agencies will undertake random checks to ensure conformity with COVID-19 rules. Should any facility or institution fail to comply with these directives, its activities will be immediately prohibited, and appropriate sanctions applied," Nana Akufo-Addo said during his COVID-19 update on Sunday, January 17, 2021.
"We do not want to go back to the days of partial lockdowns which had a negative impact on our economy and way of life but should that become necessary and should the number of active cases continue to increase at the current rate, I will have no option than to reimpose these restrictions because it is better to be safe than to be sorry so together let us all ensure that we respect the protocols," the President said in his 22nd update on government's enhanced responsive measures against the outbreak.
