The Ghana Health Service (GHS) says it will deploy health personnel during the voter registration exercise which begins on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.

A notice by the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, to its Regional Directors, directed them to dedicate health professionals to all registrations centres in a bid to curb the spread of novel coronavirus.

“The Electoral Commission of Ghana is scheduled to commence the compilation of a new voters’ register. The exercise is expected to start from 30th June 2020 to 6th August 2020. As part of mitigating measures to prevent further spread of the disease, you are by this letter directed to assign and post dedicated health staff to each of the centres as per the attached list of published registration centres,” it read.

The directive also added that “the primary responsibility of the health staff at the centres is to provide medical support in the area of sensitization on the COVID-19 protocols, taking body temperatures of all potential registrants, ensuring mandatory use of nose masks, social distancing and hygiene protocols are maintained. They are also to make necessary referrals when necessary.”

“Additionally, all Regional Directors are encouraged to step up community engagement and sensitization activities on COVID-19 protocols within your respective regions. For further information or clarification, Regional Directors should liaise with their respective counterparts in the Regional Offices of the Electoral Commission,” the statement directed.
