The Ghana School of Law has suspended all its lectures over the novel coronavirus outbreak.
The decision is on the back of new directives on public gatherings issued by the government on Sunday, March 15, 2020.
Universities, Senior High Schools, and basic schools across all sectors have been asked to close down effective Monday, March 16, 2020, for the next four weeks.
The advice did not, however, offer directions to professional bodies like the Ghana School of Law.
Students at the Ghana School of Law had already served notice they would boycott lecturers over claims that management of the school has failed to put in place adequate precautionary measures in the face of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
Following the address to the nation by President Nana Akufo-Addo “all lectures, tutorials and mock examination of the schools are hereby suspended until further notice,” a statement from the school’s authorities said.
It also asked students to adhere to all preventive measures and suggested the possibility of an online contingency.
“Management will communicate in due course any measures put in place for students to catch up on lectures online,” the statement added.
One of the cases detected in Ghana is a student of the University of Ghana.
