The Ministry of Health has through the Ghana Health Service issued a directive urging all Citizens to wear a Nose mask in all Public places where it is difficult to maintain Social Distancing.

The general public is encouraged to wear a mask covering when going out whether sick or not or attending to a sick person. The incorrect use of the face mask carries a high risk of infection. To avoid the contamination, infection or transmission of the virus, the following instructions are provided;

Procedures of wearing and removing a mask

  • Clean your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer before putting on a mask
  • Ensure that your mask fully covers your mouth and nose with no gaps between your face and mask
  • Avoid touching the mask after you have won it
  • Remove a mask by passing a finger through the loop of the mask behind one ear and lift off without touching the front of the mask- Never Touch The Front Of The Mask
