Beach closure – Holiday makers stranded
Holidaymakers were left stranded at various beach entry points across Accra on “Boxing Day” as the Greater Accra Regional Security Council (REGSEC) enforced the closure of all beaches as part of efforts to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The REGSEC, led by the Regional Minister, Mr Henry Quartey on Friday, (Dec 24, 2021) announced the closure of all beaches across the capital in an effort to stem a possible spread of COVID-19 during the Yuletide.
The Ghana News Agency reports that during a visit to some beaches in Labadi, Osu and Chorkor on Sunday, many of the entry points had been taken over by security personnel.
A few people who sneaked into the beaches were prevented from swimming by the security personnel who were patrolling the beaches.
