AVIATION: Ghana To Open Borders On September 1
President Akufo-Addo has hinted he will ensure the Ministry of Aviation, Ghana Civil Aviation Authority and the Ghana Airports Company Limited works closely with the Ministry of Health and its agencies, to ascertain the country's readiness before reopening the airport on September 1.
According to him, until that is done, Ghana's borders; by air, land and sea, still remains closed to human traffic.
In his 15th address to the nation on measures put in place to reduce the spread of covid-19, he said "For Ghana residents stranded abroad, special dispensation will continue to be given for their evacuation back to Ghana, where they will be subjected to the mandatory quarantine and safety protocols. Beaches, pubs, cinemas and nightclubs are still to remain closed until further notice"
He added he wants to ensure the country is in a position to test every single passenger that arrives in the country to avoid the spread of the virus.
"The outcome of that exercise will show us the way, and determine when we can reopen our border by air. I am hoping that, by God’s grace, we will be ready to do so by 1st September" he noted.
