Western Regional tourism awards suspended over covid-19 outbreak

The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) has called off its Western Regional annual awards programme scheduled for Saturday, March 21, as a responsive measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

This follows the President’s call for the ban of all public gatherings including, conferences, workshops, festivals, religious activities as well as political rallies.

Mr George Nkrumah Ansere, Western Regional Manager of GTA in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency advised all those in the tourism industry to put in proper sanitation measures to avoid the spread of the disease.

He said hotels, eateries among others must provide personal protective equipment like sanitizers, disposable gloves, nose masks, facial and hand covers for workers as well as their clients, adding, ‘’Don’t panic, just take care’’.

Ghana has so far recorded seven confirmed covid-19 cases.
