The president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo has lifted the ban on all church activities and the number of congregants.
President Akufo-Addo was speaking at the 14th Nation address to Ghanaians on the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The President in his address said effective 1st August 2020 the restrictions on the number of congregants worshipping at a time in Church will be lifted, with the length of worship extended from one (1) to two (2) hours per service.
Nana Addo again implored Church leaders, who are desirous of implementing this enhanced easing directive to ensure that congregants wear face masks at all times, and the one (1) meter social distancing rule is scrupulously applied.
These same guidelines he said also apply to worship at the Mosques with greater numbers of congregants likely to return for worship.
In that regard, he asked the religious leaders to pay even greater attention to the fresh air ventilation of their premises, rather than relying on the use of air conditioners.
