According to the Ministry, restaurants and other eateries cannot operate dine-in services.
It stated that they can continue to operate takeout and delivery services only.
The directive also applies to hotel restaurants.
In a press statement earlier sighted by Dailywatchgh, the Ghana Tourism Authority had given restaurants and eateries the go-ahead to operate dine-in services while observing “appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols.”
The restaurants were also to ensure “that not more than 25 patrons are admitted to dine at any particular time.”
“All hotels can operate as normal and host their guests, subject to the specified elevated hygiene protocols and social distancing,” the Tourism Authority stated.
However, the Ministry has cautioned the general public that all of such directives are null and void as their “circular supersedes the one issued by the regulator.”
They also stressed that all drinking bars and all night clubs should remain closed till further notice.
