After weeks of public discourse on how to get life back to normal despite the COVID-19 pandemic, President Akufo-Addo has announced the first phase of measures aimed at easing restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the virus.
The religious institutions have been one of the worst affected institutions since the announcement of restrictions on social gathering by the President some four months ago.
Today though, it is all joy for a number of these religious institutions following the President’s decision to ease these restrictions and allow for abridged sessions to be held effective Friday June 5, 2020. All mosques and Churches will from this weekend be able to operate with a maximum of 100 people.
In addition, all religious activities should not exceed an hour.
All other health and safety protocols are still to be adhered to including washing of hands, use of sanitisers and social distancing.
ABC News visited the St James Catholic Church in Osu to see for itself how the Church is preparing to accept congregations once more.
