The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has introduced home isolation for eligible persons who test positive upon arrival at the Kotoka International Airport.
This follows a trend of positive COVID-19 cases among persons who are asymptomatic and vaccinated persons.
A statement issued by the Health Service and signed by its Director-General, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye indicating a review of the COVID-19 isolation procedures for international arrivals at the country’s airport, noted that persons who are eligible for home isolation will continue to be isolated in the designated National Isolation Centre for designated hotels.
All persons who are 18 years and above arriving in Ghana are required to provide evidence of full vaccination for COVID-19.
Meanwhile, the Greater Accra Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has ordered the closure of all beaches within the region with immediate effect.
Henry Quartey is the Greater Accra regional minister.
