The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) seems to have eased the restrictions laid down by the president, Nana Addo Danqwah Akuffo -Addo.
According to the Authority, some guidelines have been issued since Monday, May 11 for hotels to operate normally.
However, this would be subject to ‘specified elevated hygiene protocols’ as well as social distancing.
During the last national address of the president on Sunday, the president stipulated that restaurants and drinking bars should still be closed.
However the GTA made known in their guidelines that food chains and restaurants can operate both sit-in and pick up delivery services alongside observing the social distancing protocol.
“Drinking bars can operate while observing appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols”.
However, the authority indicated that all night clubs should remain closed.
The Chief Executive Officer of GTA, Akwasi Agyemang made some clarifications on whether the authority have eased the restrictions or not.
He however indicated that the guidelines are only to clarify the Executive instrument for operators and not that the restrictions are being eased.
