The Government of Ghana has declared the coming Friday and next Monday as public holidays.
That is because Friday, April 10 and Monday, April 13 are Good Friday and Easter Monday on the Christian calendar.
However, this comes at a time when parts of the country are in a partial lockdown as part of efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus.
A statement issued by the Minister of Interior Ambrose Dery said “the General Public is hereby reminded that Friday, 10th April, 2020 and Monday, 13th April, 2020 which mark Good Friday and Easter Monday respectively, are Statutory Public Holidays.”
He asked that it should be observed as such “throughout the country.”
It should be noted that the parts of the country which are not under lockdown are to observe social distancing.
It would also mean that certain categories of essential workers such as bankers who are currently going to work will also stay at home on Friday and Saturday.
