Dear GhanaWeb reader,
It’s a big weekend in Ghana and not only because of Father’s Day that falls on Sunday, but the election primaries of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Saturday.
We want to wish all fathers a Happy Father’s Day and also wish the NPP an incident-free primaries without the breach of coronavirus protocols.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced a mandatory wearing of face masks by Ghanaians as enshrined in the new Executive Instrument under the Imposition of Restrictions Act, 2020 (Act 1012).
Per the E.I., face masks, face shields or any other face covering that covers a person’s nose or mouth completely must be worn when they are in public or leaving or returning to their place of abode.
Failure to comply will attract a summary conviction to a fine of not less than 1,000 penalty units (Gh¢12,000) and not more than 5,000 penalty units (Gh¢60,000) or to a term of imprisonment not less than four years and not more than 10 years or to both, the president added.
Stay safe and stay free!
