No entry at December events without vaccination card – Tourism Ministry

Mark Okraku Mantey, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts, and Culture, has warned that people who do not have Covid -19 vaccination will be denied entry to events this December.

The government, according to the Minister, has outlined requirements and guidelines to control and avoid the spread of COVID-19 during the December festivities.

He stated on Hitz FM that people who have not been vaccinated but do not have vaccination cards will be denied entry to social gatherings.

“Vaccination cards will be required to enter; you must show proof of vaccination to be admitted.”

“Children aged five and up would require a mask,” he added. Masks will be removed for special occasions such as eating and drinking.”

“We want to keep you and your siblings and your family alive,” the Deputy Tourism Minister explained, “because if we come together at a particular place, especially indoor events, and we don’t put some checks and balances in place, we’re likely to have challenges after December.”

Mark Okraku Mantey also announced that the government will launch a ‘December in GH’ campaign to promote tourism during the upcoming holiday season. According to him, over 150,000 people are expected to visit Ghana during this time period, so the government is working hard to prevent a spike in the spread of Covid-19 cases.

“When you want to go to any event, especially now that we’ve launched ‘December in GH,’ we’re saying that we’re targeting about 150,000 people entering the country between now and January; we don’t have to go and have fun and then come back with Covid-19,” he explained.
