Open air bars to reopen as President eases restrictions

The entertainment industry can start breathing a little easier as President Akufo-Addo has eased some of the restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In his 14th address to the nation on measures taken to ease the spread of the coronavirus on Sunday, July 26, President Akufo-Addo said open-air drinking bars, which have been closed down since March could reopen.

The President also announced that tourist sites and attractions could reopen but said they had to enforce all the safety protocols.

“In consultation with the Ghana Tourism Authority and the health experts, I’m announcing the reopening of our nation’s tourist sites and attractions so they can begin to receive visitors. Open-air drinking spots can now function. The management of these facilities are, thus, to enforce enhanced hygiene and social distancing protocols,” he stated.

The President however stated that beaches, pubs, cinemas and nightclubs were to remain closed until further notice.

The reopening of the open-air bars in addition to hotels and restaurants is good news for the industry, which has been reeling from the effects of the pandemic.
