President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo has declared the wearing of face mask now mandatory.

He said this in his 11th address to the nation on the measures taken on COVID-19 on Sunday June 14, 2020.

According to the President, leaving home without a face mask or a face covering on is now an offence.

He added that police have been instructed to enforce the directive which is the subject of an executive instrument.

“With the doctors and scientists telling us that the virus is transmitted from human contact, through talking, singing, coughing and sneezing, which results in sending droplets of the virus from one person to another, residents of these four regions, and, indeed, all Ghanaians, must remember that the wearing of masks is now mandatory.”

“Leaving our homes without a face mask or face covering on is an offence. The Police have been instructed to enforce this directive, which is the subject of an Executive Instrument.”
