The ban on funerals in the country remains in force despite the relaxation of restrictions on social gatherings.

According to President Akufo-Addo in his tenth televised address to the country, private burials of up to 100 people are being encouraged to ease the pressure on mortuaries in the country.

“Private burials, now with a maximum of one hundred (100) persons, can continue to be performed. Restaurants, providing seated services, can operate under appropriate social distancing arrangements and hygiene protocols. Individual, non-contact sports can go ahead. Conferences, workshops, weddings, and political activities, except rallies, can now take place, but with limited numbers not exceeding one hundred (100) persons present, with the appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols.”

The President while allowing churches and mosques to operate from Friday, June 5, 2020, however, clarified that beaches, drinking pubs, and crusades remain suspended.

“I have, by Executive Instrument, provided for these new directions, and extended the suspension of the remaining public gatherings, as set out in E.I. 64 of 15th March, until 31st July. In here, I refer to the suspension of sporting events, nightclubs, cinemas, drinking spots, bars, beaches, festivals, funerals, political rallies, and large religious gatherings such as crusades, pilgrimages, and conventions.”
